MONA PRESENTS: THE AUSTRALIAN STRING QUARTET
SUPERNORMAL: WORKS BY SYMONDS, GLASS AND ADÈS.
Four of Australia’s most outstanding string players (on a set of matched nineteenth century Guadagnini instruments) hit the Nolan to perform three virtuosic contemporary classical works: alternately invigorating, trancelike and intricate. Apparently it’s ‘like having a gymnast perform in your lounge room’.
Jack Symonds's: String Quartet No.2*
Philip Glass's: String Quartet No.3, ‘Mishima’
Thomas Adès: Arcadiana
*Commissioned by the Australian String Quartet for the London season of ANAM Quartetthaus through the Australian String Quartet Richard Divall Australian Music Fund.
