New music from Australia

Australia Piano Quartet
The Australia Piano Quartet will be performing music by Peter Sculthorpe, Faure and Schumann, plus a new commission from Jack Symonds at their concert on Tuesday 2 June 2015 at Milton Court Concert Hall. The concert is part of the group's first European tour. 

The Australia Piano Quartet, Daniel de Borah (piano), Thomas Rann (cello), Rebecca Chan (violin), James Wannan (viola), was formed in 2011 and has recently begun a residency at the University of Technology, Sydney. As part of the residency the group is commissioning seven Australian composers for new works to be performed in the university's Frank Gehry designed auditorium. One of these commissions is Responsorium by Jack Symonds which the quartet will be performing alongside Landscapes II one of the most colourful chamber works by one of the giants of Australian music, the late Peter Sculthorpe (1929-2014). Completing the programme at Milton Court will be Schumann's Piano Quartet and Faure's Piano Quartet No. 2. Further information and tickets from the Barbican website.
