The Flinders Quartet
Midsummer Mendelssohn Gala
A Prelude in Tea Concert
Flinders Quartet, together with composer Iain Grandage and violist Chris Moore, reimagine Mendelssohn's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream ' incidental score with the support of dramaturge, Kirsty Hillhouse in a concert that will grab the imagination. As a little entre, Chris will narrate Leunig's poignant 'The Curly Pyjama Letters ' with Calvin Bowman's accompanying score. Commissioned by FQ in 2012, this work's delightful quirkiness has struck a chord with audiences. Juxtaposing this is the purely romantic, melodic world of Brahms. Described as a man 'steeped in force ', Brahms' G major quintet brings us back to the purity of music with musicianship of the highest order.
