A program showcasing the renowned Sydney-based Australia Piano Quartet in three diverse works will be presented by the Yass Music Club this Sunday.
The program will include Sculthorpe’s evocative Landscapes; Mozart’s seminal first piano quartet; and a rarely performed masterwork by Russian composer Sergei Taneyev, Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev’s teacher.
The Australia Piano Quartet has been the ensemble in residence at the University of Technology in Sydney since 2012.
They routinely play the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Recital Centre, as well as international tours throughout Europe and Asia.
In addition to their exploration of canonic masterpieces of the piano quartet repertoire, the ensemble are committed to unearthing neglected works of past and present, while championing the creation of new work.
To date they have commissioned more than 20 new piano quartets from a diverse range of established and emerging Australian composers.
The Australia Piano Quartet will perform on Sunday June 17 at 2pm (to 4.30pm) at the Yass Soldiers Memorial Hall, 82-94 Comur Street.
Afternoon tea provided.
