Event Details

For their 5th birthday celebrations Acacia Quartet will be joined by Tamara-Anna Cislowska, one of Australia's most acclaimed and recognised pianists. The exciting program will feature a world premiere by Lyle Chan, Claude Debussy's masterful String Quartet and Elena Kats-Chernin's Five Chapters in a new arrangement by the composer for Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Acacia Quartet.

In honour of Acacia Quartet's 5th birthday, Acacia’s own violinist, Lisa Stewart, has created a stunning mixed media portrait of Australia's esteemed composer, Elena Kats-Chernin, who is also Patron of Acacia Quartet - the portrait is called 'Layers of Elena'. Lisa, who is also an established, published illustrator, has used strands of Elena’s original manuscripts in this unique artwork. Presented at Acacia's 'Five Chapters' concert on Thursday 28 May at 7:30pm at Australian Hall, 150 Elizabeth St, Sydney - where Elena's eponymous composition will be premiered by Acacia with guest pianist, Tamara-Anna Cislowska - bids are also accepted by phone until 27 May, and on paper on the night. Full proceeds will go towards funding the Quartet’s 2016 ‘ACACIA Presents....’ concert series in Sydney and the Southern Highlands. Portrait details: Mixed media, size 56 x 76 cm Portrait will be entered into the Archibald Prize (and therefore will be framed - of course portrait can be sent without frame to reduce shipping costs) Auction and post-concert drinks!

Featured non-Australian music: Claude Debussy - String Quartet
