Acacia Quartet (Canowindra)

Sun 7 May at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Acacia string Quartet, comprising two violins, viola and cello, was formed in Sydney thirteen years ago. Members Stefan Duwe and Lisa Stewart, moved from Sydney to Canowindra about two years ago and now teach at Orange Regional Conservatorium.

The concert will feature compositions by: Alice Chance (Australian) – Precious Colours; Ludwig van Beethoven – String Quartet No. 10, Op. 74 ‘Harp’ and Franz Schubert – String Quartet No. 14, D801 ‘Death and The Maiden’

The second movement is a theme and variations based on a song entitled Death and the Maiden, a song Schubert had composed in 1817 when he was twenty years old. The song sets a poem by Matthias Claudius, in which Death comes to claim an adolescent girl who is not prepared to go quietly.

Tickets for the concert are $50 and can be purchased by phoning 0429 443 215 or at the door.

Later this year, Acacia Quartet will begin an extensive Australian concert tour.
