Four strings, four composers, four quartets. This Argonaut Quartet recital brings second insight to the sound worlds of Christophe Bertrand and Kimmo Kuokkala, composers featured by our 2015 international guest ensembles. Also featured is the sublime second quartet of Stefano Gervasoni, whose music will be heard for the first time in Australia, and a world premiere and BIFEM debut from New Zealand composer Dylan Lardelli.
4x4x4 will also feature for eight audience members a world-first contemporary art intervention by St Martins: Soundtracks. During the Bertrand quartet, this group will experience a live commentary by young artists aged 8–12 delivered to them in the auditorium via headphones. Soundtracks is designed to augment the audience experience by giving an insight into the perspective of children: poignant, authentic and at times hilarious.
