Musica Viva : Avi Avital & Giocoso String Quartet

Thursday 12 April, 7.30pm
79 days from now

Presented by Musica Viva

A solo superstar, an award-winning quartet, and music for the heart and the mind: the bright yet intimate sounds of Avi Avital’s mandolin are a perfect foil for the warm strings of the Giocoso Quartet. With such compelling musicianship and characterful playing on display, the potential for fascinating repertoire is high. Featuring two works written for Avi, the program also includes Bach and Schumann.

SCHUMANN String Quartet no 1 in A minor, op 41 no 1
JS BACH Chaconne from Partita in D minor for violin, BWV1004
BRUCE Cymbeline for mandolin and string quartet

*A world premiere commissioned for Musica Viva by Kim Williams AM
