Affinity Quartet – Schubert's Death & the Maiden

A timeless Schubert string quartet paired with the Australian premiere of an excitingly unique new work.

Following their history-making performance at the 2023 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, Affinity Quartet return to the Primrose Potter Salon for an unforgettable performance of Schubert’s String Quartet No.14 Death and the Maiden.

Considered a pillar of chamber music repertoire, Schubert’s hauntingly poetic work comes to life in Affinity Quartet’s final performance of 2024, with their ‘highly committed and suavely flexible’ (The Age) approach to music-making on full display.

To open, the Quartet present the Australian premiere of Alice Chance’s new work. The Paris-based Australian composer has written for the likes of Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble Offspring and Gondwana Choirs, and her approach to composition was described by ABC Classic as ‘always slightly beautifully weird.’
