Mendelssohn wrote his String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13 in 1827, deeply inspired by Beethoven’s last quartets. Lyle Chan’s new work will be the continuation of Acacia’s close relationship with the Australian composer. Fratres by Estonian Arvo Part has been described as a “mesmerising set of variations on a six-bar theme combining frantic activity and sublime stillness”. Airat Ichmouratov: “String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35, ‘Time and Fate’ was composed during the spring of 2012, right after the tragic death of Eleonora Turovsky, who was like a second mother to me.
