In a refreshing pairing that links some of Australia’s greatest chamber music talent, the renowned Australian String Quartet (ASQ) team up with the award-winning Arcadia Winds for two unique concerts.

For over 30 years the ASQ has brought their experience, vibrancy and distinct sound to unforgettable string quartet performances. Arcadia Winds, 2015–17 Musica Viva FutureMakers, are the new kids on the block, but already this young ensemble has been making a mark with its energetic, spontaneous and joyful performances.

Now these nine accomplished musicians come together to perform attention-grabbing repertoire that is rare and full of fun – from the beloved Britten Sinfonietta and Mozart Flute Quartet to works by Françaix, Smalley and Martinu.
