Musica Viva Australia
An Australian debut for Vision String Quartet – a crack ensemble from Berlin who performs from memory, offering a deeper, more immersive experience for audiences.
The conductor Jeffrey Tate once described the string quartet as ‘the most perfect expression of human behavior’. Composers from Haydn to Adès have reveled in this most intimate and virtuosic of musical forms, awed by the sight of four musicians moving across a tightrope at speed.
The four young musicians that make up the Vision String Quartet add one extra element to this dexterous feat: they perform everything from memory. Repertory that might be familiar – Bartók’s astonishing Quartet No. 4, say, or Dvořák’s Quartet No. 13 – is utterly transformed.
This prizewinning Berlin-based quartet – praised as ‘amazingly vivacious, vivid and electrifying… completely fearless’ by Der Tagesspiegel – has gathered fans aplenty across Europe since forming in 2012, and here makes its thrilling Australian debut.
