Held at Government House

The Soirée Series offers a rare opportunity to experience three exclusive events in the Green Room of Government House.

First is the Darlington Quartet, an ensemble of gifted musicians drawn from the Australian String Quartet and West Australian Symphony Orchestra. The Darlington Quartet specialises in chamber music played in intimate settings, where they are able to create a closer connection with the audience.

The players will provide wonderful insights by introducing the pieces they have chosen. These include Ravel's virtuosic string quartet No.1, which displays his endless imagination for sound and texture on a magic carpet ride of colour and fantasy. Tchaikovsky's first quartet is full of the heartfelt melodies and irresistible rhythms, including the famous slow movement, that make him such a beloved composer. The Darlington Quartet love these works because they vividly show the imaginative and expressive possibilities of the string quartet.
