The Australian String Quartet will perform at the Latrobe Regional Performing Arts Centre Grey Street Traralgon on November 13 at 8pm.

Latrobe City’s Performing Arts Director, Paul Holton, said the quartet will perform a program featuring the works of two of the greatest composers of the last three centuries, Alexander Borodin and Franz Schubert. "The program will include Borodin’s String Quartet no 2 in D major and Schubert’s Quintet in C major for 2 violins, viola and 2 cellos," Mr Holton said.

Mr Holton said the Australian String Quartet is Australia’s longest standing, full-time professional string quartet, and is acclaimed for its interpretive finesse and meticulous attention to detail, as well as the passion of its commitment to the art of chamber music.

"This is a performance encompassing distinguished guest artists, both Australian and international. Natsuko Yoshimoto and James Cuddeford playing violin, Esther van Stralen playing viola, Niall Brown on cello and guest artist Liwei Qin also playing cello," Mr Holton said.

"The Australian String Quartet gives regular concerts in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart and is committed to making its performances as accessible as possible and performs in a wide variety of contexts. It has undertaken many other engagements throughout the rest of Australia such as performing in mining townships, in bush settings and at a historic station property.

"In March 1999 the Quartet undertook a seven – concert tour of the UK, Germany and Malaysia, its fifteenth overseas tour in its fourteen year history, a tour which cemented its international reputation as one of Australia’s finest ensembles," Mr Holton added.

Tickets for the Australian String Quartet performance are available from Select Music Systems in Franklin Street, Traralgon.
