Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - String Quartet No. 19, K465 ‘Dissonance’

Tigran Mansurian - Testament

Alice Chance - ‘A Sundried Quartet’

Claude Debussy - String Quartet

Mozart’s String Quartet in C Major, K465, nicknamed ‘Dissonance’ was written between 1782 and 1785 and is the last one in a set of six quartets, dedicated to Joseph Haydn. The famous opening earned the piece its nickname.

Testament by Lebanese-Armenian Tigran Mansurian is a five-minute Lento, written in 2004 as a tribute to ECM Records-founder and producer Manfred Eicher. 

Young Australian composer, Alice Chance (2018 APRA Finalist), has written a new string quartet for Acacia Quartet.

Debussy’s String Quartet, written in 1893, has become one of the most beloved pieces in the string quartet repertoire because of the stunning sensual beauty and variety of textures Debussy manages to create with these four homogeneous string instruments.
