Le Dimore del Quartetto


Categories ,

Affinity Quartet formed in 2014 at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and graduated as winners of the 2015 ANAM Chamber Music Competition. Supported by Australia Council for the Arts and a scholarship to the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove UK, the quartet embarked on a six week tour to the UK and Germany which included further
tuition and concert performances. Affinity Quartet has established itself in Australia performing programs that explore diverse histories in the string quartet. These have included Australian premières of the complete string quartets of Janáček, Pavel Haas, Benjamin Britten and Sir Andrzej Panufnik. Affinity Quartet’s 2019 three part series NEXUS includes works by
Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Borodin, Bloch, Shostakovich, Bartók and Matthew Hindson (AU). Affinity Quartet has been a featured ensemble of Play On Music, Melbourne, since 2017. In 2020 they undertake a second international tour to the Amsterdam String Quartet Biennale, Lübeck, Salzburg and London to perform IN THE LIGHT, a series of concert programs, including a collaboration with Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean.
