Australian String Quartet

May 17, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Ukaria Cultural Centre

Sublime musicianship and a drive to create utterly exquisite chamber music fuelled Brahms at the time he created his first String Quartet. The result is a beautiful work of over ten years in the making. Australian artist Kate Moore has forged a career working with some of the hottest contemporary music ensembles. Her art arises from a fascination with the natural world, which she celebrates in this new ASQ commission.

Includes Devonshire tea served prior to the performance from 10.00am.
