Performing on a quartet of instruments and bows crafted by luthier Trevor Liversidge, Collusion presents a colourful program of string quartet and solo music specifically chosen to highlight the instruments being played. The program will include Mozart’s evocative ‘Dissonance’ quartet, Piazzolla’s empassioned Four for Tango, Pärt’s sublime Summa, Eames’ rapturous Spiders! Spiders! Spiders! Spiders!, and solo works by Ibert, Ysaye, Bach and Prokofiev. The concert will appeal to all lovers of string music and will be of particular interest to teachers, students and prospective instrument buyers.

The Violinmakers’ Showcase performs an important role in increasing awareness of the outstanding standard of instrument making here in Queensland.

About Trevor Liversidge

Trevor is one of Australia’s most respected luthiers and bowmakers. Having trained with the highly regarded violinmaker Harry Vatiliotis in 1981, Trevor continues an Australian lineage from Vatiliotis’ teacher, AE Smith. Trevor attended The Stringed Instrument Restoration Workshop at Oberlin College Ohio, USA, and, with the assistance of an Australia Council grant in 1991, spent time studying the restoration of instruments at the University of New Hampshire, USA. Trevor worked from the Lake Macquarie region for many years, and established Hunter Valley Violins in 1990. Now based in Brisbane, Trevor continues making superior instruments and bows for local, national and international performers.
