Australian String Quartet presents
Glass Dean Mendelssohn
Philip Glass, String Quartet no 3 Mishima
Brett Dean, String Quartet Eclipse
Mendelssohn, String Quartet in D major op 44 no 1

Philip Glass reflects upon the life of the iconic poet Yukio Mishima in a work of great evocative power, gripping in its vivid musical imagery of the controversial artist’s turbulent life. Brett Dean’s art is driven by serious concerns and his first string quartet responds to the events of the refugee crisis, through music of haunting eeriness and explosive anger reaching tentatively towards the hope for peace.

The intensity of these opening works finds a perfect counterpoise in Mendelssohn’s radiant String Quartet in D major, where the composer marshals the full resources of his prodigious musicality in a virtuosic creation of musical sunshine. With all the ecstatic brilliance of the composer’s most joyful music, the quartet reminds us of music’s power to revive the spirits.
