Airat Ichmouratov - String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35 ‘Time & Fate”, Australian Premiere

Felix Mendelssohn - String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13

Lyle Chan - Virelai (2019, from String Quartet), World Premiere

Airat Ichmouratov: “String Quartet No. 4, Op. 35, ‘Time and Fate’ was composed during the spring of 2012, right after the tragic death of Eleonora Turovsky, who was like a second mother to me. This event marked the first time in my life when the passing of Time acquired a strikingly visual aspect.”

Mendelssohn wrote his String Quartet No. 2, Op. 13 in 1827, deeply inspired by Beethoven’s last quartets, composed shortly before, quoting one of his early songs ‘Frage’ Op. 9.

Lyle Chan’s new work will be the continuation of Acacia’s close relationship with the Australian composer.
