Acacia Quartet - Bega Civic Centre

Saturday, July 27, 2019 

Program:
Fratres
Felix Mendelssohn - String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13
Lyle Chan - String Quartet (World Premiere)
Arvo Part - Fratres
Airat Ichmouratov - String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35 ‘Time & Fate”

Mendelssohn wrote his String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13 in 1827, deeply inspired by Beethoven’s last quartets, composed shortly before, quoting one of his early songs ‘Frage’ Op. 9.
Lyle Chan’s new work will be the continuation of Acacia’s close relationship with the Australian composer.
Fratres by Estonian Arvo Part has been described as a “mesmerising set of variations on a six-bar theme combining frantic activity and sublime stillness that encapsulates Pärt’s observation that ‘the instant and eternity are struggling within us’.
Airat Ichmouratov: “String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35, ‘Time and Fate’ was composed during the spring of 2012, right after the tragic death of Eleonora Turovsky, who was like a second mother to me. This event marked the first time in my life when the passing of Time acquired a strikingly visual aspect.”

On Saturday 27 July 2019 at 2:00pm - 4:00pm
