AUSTRALIAN STRING QUARTET PRESENTS TEMPESTA

The concert features Webern’s Fünf Sätze, condensing a lifetime of thoughts into five succinct and beautifully crafted gems.  Haydn’s early quartet from op 20 counters this with well-balanced classical logic and stark beauty. The fresh and quick-fire new style in Australian composer/pianist Joe Chindamo’s Tempesta, is a world away from the palpable anguish and heart-torn emotion in Mendelssohn’s final quartet, written in despair following the death of his sister Fanny.  It was his last quartet.
