Orava Quartet and Melbourne Recital Centre present

Mad Piper

Orava’s performance in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall explores the folk music that binds, comforts and grounds them. Songs of their grandmothers, from childhood, home and travels in distant lands. Orava Quartet present four great composers whose works cite folk tunes from western and eastern Europe.

From De Falla’s Spain, the Quartet journeys through Greece to Australia in Elena Kats-Chernin’s newest string quartet, sharing stories of maternal hope, tragedy and triumph through four generations of a family. Fischer tells tales of brave heroes and far-away legends, and Shostakovich explores both happiness and loss in his sixth quartet, composed while on honeymoon, in a work seen as the harbinger for his mighty eighth quartet.

The anchors of home, family, resilience and hope are distilled in this moving and heartfelt program presented by the Orava Quartet, threaded through with folksong.
