Highly inflected and vividly interactive music-making. The most electrifying string-quartet concert in recent memory. DALLAS NEWS
Combining youthful brilliance with the finest Hungarian tradition, Kelemen Quartet evoke energetic flair, fierce artistic commitment and striking charisma.
Kelemen Quartet will perform the world premiere of the new string quartet by beloved Australian composer Ross Edwards. The evocatively titled Summer Dances is a wonderfully fitting match for this ensemble and will make for a rapturous performance.
The quartet also explore the fine Classical polish of Haydn and Beethoven, the rich melodies of Tchaikovsky, and the visceral beauty of Bartók.
