Internationally acclaimed for its ‘addictive sound’ and ‘intuitive’ music making, Australia’s Tinalley String Quartet has established itself as one of the finest string quartets of its generation since forming in 2003.
Awarded First Prize at the 9th Banff International String Quartet Competition and Grand Prize at the 2005 Australian Chamber Music Competition, the Quartet has performed throughout Europe, America, Canada and Australia to critical acclaim. International highlights have included appearances at the Vienna Musikverein, Berlin Konzerthaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Bremen Die Glocke, Frankfurt AlteOper, as well as in Paris, Hamburg, Vancouver, San Francisco, Toronto and New York.
In Australia, the Quartet has an active recital schedule and has appeared at the nation’s premier festivals including the Adelaide Music Festival, Perth International Arts Festival, Canberra International Music Festival, Tasmania Chamber Music Festival, Huntington Festival, Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. The Quartet has been broadcast worldwide by ABC Classic FM, CBC Canada, SRW2 and HR2 Kultur Germany, Radio France and Public National Radio, The Netherlands. A recent CD release of Haydn’s Opus 20 Quartets garnered international praise, with UK’s Strad Magazine describing the performances as “technically assured, warm-toned, beautifully blended and ideally balanced” and singling the recording out as ‘recommended listening’.
Tinalley is currently Quartet in Residence at The University of Queensland and in 2018 released a new recording of the Ravel and Debussy String Quartets on the DECCA Classics.
The quartet will bring our audience a beautiful program including Arva Pärt’s Fratres plus Mendelssohn and Debussy.
