Flinders Quartet performed a marvellous concert today, featuring a brand new work from Melbourne composer, Matthew Laing. The work, called ‘Out of Hibernation’ explored the experience of existence and change from animal and human perspectives and it was a delight to hear Matthew speak about the work, as it deepened the experience for the audience. Bookending ‘Out of Hibernation’ were Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 64, No. 3 and Robert Schumann’s String Quartet No. 3 in A major, Op. 41, No. 3. Flinders Quartet’s deep connectedness to the music and to one another’s playing was on display, along with virtuosity and flexibility of technique. It was a wonderful concert and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who came.
