The Australian String Quartet is joined by recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey for a concert celebrating powerhouse musical partnerships, enigmatic Australian landscapes and monumental musical gallantry.
Celebrated Australian composer, Elena Kats-Chernin, wrote Re-Inventions for Genevieve Lacey and string quartet in 2004. Infused with the spirit of Bach’s keyboard inventions and employing multiple instruments, these three movements illustrate an array of colours, from playful to dark and sombre, to simply virtuosic.
Lachlan Skipworth’s new work for bass recorder and string quartet is inspired by the breathtaking cave systems of Western Australia’s Margaret River region. With the inclusion of a backdrop of digital sound, the bass recorder in the beautiful key of G flat becomes the melodic focus in this hauntingly restrained work.
Featured non-Australian music: Mendelssohn, Fischer
