Description

In a project called Quartet & Country, the composers and quartet have collaborated to bring the songlines and stories of this vast country into conversation with the masterworks of the European musical canon. Singer Dr Lou Bennett AM, didgeridoo master William Barton, Broome music icon Stephen Pigram and Noongar elder Roma 'Yibiyung' Winmar bring stories from the four corners of this continent and in doing so, ground the great European string quartet tradition in this country. The works have been rapturously received whenever performed and are the centrepiece of the Chamber Music Weekend.
