Internationally acclaimed for its ‘addictive sound’ and ‘intuitive’ music making, Australia’s Tinalley String Quartet presents ‘Another State of Being’, an evocative program featuring two Czech masterpieces and Beethoven’s Harp Quartet.
The internationally acclaimed Tinalley String Quartet continues to enthral Sydney audiences in its 2017 Series with three programs inspired by the words of Russian novelist, Leo Tolstoy. The first Program opens with Janáček’s ‘Kreutzer Sonata’, a
compelling musical narrative that was written in response to Tolstoy’s provocative novella of the same name. Janáček’s composition is a vivid portrayal of love, jealousy, obsession and violence. By way of contrast, Beethoven’s ‘Harp’ Quartet is considered one of Beethoven’s more peaceful outpourings. Inherently classical in style, the ‘Harp’ is the first of two Beethoven quartets Tinalley will explore from his ‘middle’ or ‘heroic’ period in the 2017 Series. Dvořák’s ‘American’ Quartet remains one of the genre’s most beloved works. Written when the Czech composer was holidaying in the small American-Czech village of Spillville, the work is imbued with warmth and sunshine.
