Penny Quartet, the dynamic young Australian string quartet, present a recital of two great classics. Known across the country and beyond for their vibrant approach to performance, this is a rare opportunity to hear them play an exclusively classical program.

Mozart's “Spring” quartet is an incredibly tender and finessed work, soaring melodies and dramatic passagework combining to create an electric atmosphere. Beethoven's Opus 18 no. 1 is a favourite for Penny Quartet, and despite it being only the second string quartet Beethoven ever wrote, it is an absolute pinnacle of the repertoire. Full of twists and turns, and a heart breaking second movement based on the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet, this is a must-see-live masterpiece.
