Singapore’s premier string quartet cuts an unmistakable silhouette on the global stage. They have been pushing the boundaries of classical music since 1992 with an artful blend of East and West.
This Brisbane Festival concert reveals musical visions of darkness and light.

At the centre of the concert is George Crumb’s 1970 ‘Black Angels’ – a maniacal alchemy of electric string instruments, glass rods, crystal glasses and tamtam gongs that resurrects uneasy memories of the Vietnam War. It is framed by the hope, light and healing of Hildegard von Bingen’s 12th-century prayer ‘3 Antiphons’, and John Tavener’s mystical ‘The Hidden Treasure’ from 1989.

Demon or angel, darkness or light.
Which are you?
