Music by the Sea

  • Sandgate Town Hall Sandgate, QLD, 4017 Australia (map)

American Tradition

Osvaldo Golijov's haunting Tenebrae was written in response to violence and beauty. Gordon Kerry's String Quartet No. 5, a new Australian work, is featuring various hymns and nature descriptions. The program will finish with Antonín Dvorák's famous String Quartet No. 12, Op. 96, 'American'. Dvorák wrote this wonderful piece during the summer of 1893, while being on vacation in Spillville, Iowa and it cleary shows African-American influences.
