Affinity Quartet represents the next generation of Australia’s chamber music stars, having developed its craft in Europe to critical acclaim. It brings home an inspired approach to music-making, matched by its adventurous spirit as a string quartet for and of today.

About the concert

‘I love the way some music suddenly takes you to the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolour transition.’ These words by composer Caroline Shaw describe the inspiration for Entr’acte, Affinity Quartet’s opening composition. Following is Haydn String Quartet Op.76/4 ‘Sunrise’ and finishing with Hungarian composer Bartók String Quartet No.4.
