Description

ASQ in concert with Genevieve Lacey celebrates powerhouse musical partnerships, enigmatic Australian landscapes and monumental musical gallantry, with works from Australian composers Elena Kats-Chernin and the world premiere of a new work from Lachlan Skipworth. The quartet will also perform pieces by Felix Mendelssohn and Pavel Fischer. Lachlan Skipworth’s new work for bass recorder and string quartet is inspired by the breathtaking cave systems of Western Australia’s Margaret River region. With the inclusion of a backdrop of digital sound, the bass recorder in the beautiful key of G flat becomes the melodic focus in this hauntingly restrained work. Elena Kats-Chernin wrote Re-Inventions for Genevieve Lacey and string quartet in 2004. Infused with the spirit of Bach’s keyboard inventions and employing multiple instruments, these three movements illustrate an array of colours, from playful to dark and sombre, to simply virtuosic.
