Musica Viva Tasmania presents

SUN, BREIDER, CLERICI & DE BORAH

Frank Bridge’s most famous student Benjamin Britten described this quartet as: ‘Sonorous yet lucid, with clear, clean lines, grateful to listen to and to play. Brahms happily tempered with Fauré.’ Sculthorpe’s ‘Landscape II’ for piano quartet is influenced by Japanese music, the Balinese gamelan and Australian Aboriginal chant.

The natural world is ever-present, especially through the sounds of insects and the occasional cries of birds. Brahms’ monumental A major quartet is a poised and lyrical work, laid out on a broad and symphonic scale; its ‘heavenly length’ and extended melodic ideas are reminiscent of the music of Schubert.
