Simon Bolivar String Quartet

11 May 2017

Simon Bolivar String Quartet Image

Join the Simon Bolivar String Quartet at the Melbourne Recital Centre on May 15 to discover a new way of hearing the classics in the hands of four brilliant young musicians.

A product of the internationally-renowned El Sistema (The System) program, the Simon Bolivar String Quartet is storming the bastions of classic music with their virtuosic and startlingly fresh readings of iconic quartets and rarities.

The young quartet comprises the section leaders of Venezuela’s famed Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra.  It is the centre piece of El Sistema’s remarkable array of hundreds of youth orchestras and chamber music ensembles, which have changed the lives of poor children across the country.

This vibrant ensemble makes its Melbourne debut with iconoclastic readings of the classical wit of Haydn’s Op. 33 and Beethoven’s profoundly playful second Razumovsky quartet – a telling contrast to the bleak, war-torn landscape of Shostakovich’s chilling String Quartet No.8.

The performance will take place on Monday, May 15 at 7.30pm at the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall for two hours including interval. Book now at melbournerecital.com.au
