“…without a doubt one of the best ensembles in the world.” - Reinhard Palmer, Süddeutsche Zeitung.
French Quatuor Voce marks its Australian debut with a thoroughly Germanic program of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms’ contemporary, Anton Bruckner. The latter shares with Bach a love of the church organ and an unshakable belief in the awe-inspiring beauty of God’s creation. His monumental, rarely performed string quintet crowns this occasion. Three fugues from Bach’s final opus and Beethoven’s heavenly Harp Quartet pave the way to heaven.
