For over 30 years, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable chamber music experiences for national and international audiences. From its home base at the University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium of Music, the ASQ reaches out across Australia and the world to engage people with an outstanding program of performances.
The Quartet members are Dale Barltrop (Violin), Francesca Hiew (Violin), Stephen King (Viola) and Sharon Draper (Cello). The distinct sound of the ASQ is enhanced and unified by its matched set of 18th century Guadagnini instruments, handcrafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between (circa) 1743 and 1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy. They are on loan to the ASQ for their exclusive use through the generosity of Ulrike Klein and UKARIA.
In this special concert the ASQ will be joined by guest artist, classical guitar virtuoso, Slava Grigoryan.
Slava Grigoryan is regarded as a “wizard” of the guitar with a talent for bewitching his audiences. At just eighteen, Grigoryan, was on his first tour after being signed to the Sony Classical Label. This tour was with guitar legends Paco Peña and Leo Kottke. Since then he’s travelled the world as a soloist and with orchestras in Australia, Europe, Asia and North America, and performed at dozens of national and international arts, music and guitar festivals. Slava has won ARIA awards for Best Classical Album and released over 20 solo and collaborative albums.
We welcome back Slava Grigoryan and the Australian String Quartet to the ORC for this unique concert experience.
