Musica Viva Masterclass | Vision String Quartet
The Conservatorium is proud of its ongoing collaboration with Musica Viva Australia. In 2023, join students and staff on campus in welcoming some of the World’s finest chamber musicians for a series of masterclasses.
The conductor Jeffrey Tate once described the string quartet as ‘the most perfect expression of human behaviour’. Composers from Haydn to Adès have revelled in this most intimate and virtuosic of musical forms, awed by the sight of four musicians moving across a tightrope at speed. The four young musicians that make up the Vision String Quartet add one extra element to this dextrous feat: they perform everything from memory. Repertory that might be familiar – Bartók’s astonishing Quartet No. 4, say, or Dvořák’s Quartet No. 13 – is utterly transformed.
This prizewinning Berlin-based quartet – praised as ‘amazingly vivacious, vivid and electrifying completely fearless’ by Der Tagesspiegel – has gathered fans aplenty across Europe since forming in 2012, and here makes its thrilling Australian debut with Musica Viva this October.
Join members of the quartet as they work with talented WA Chamber Ensembles.
