The Australian String Quartet Announces A New Line-up

The Australian String Quartet has announced that violinist Ioanna Tache and cellist Sharon Draper will join present members violinist Kristian Winther and violist Stephen King to form a new line – up for the ensemble. Both newcomers are graduates of the Australian National Academy of Music.

The newly re-configured ensemble will perform in Sydney on Tuesday 12th November at the City Recital Hall, playing Schnittke’s String Quartet no 3 and Beethoven’s String Quartet op 130 and Grosse Fuge.

The players of the ensemble perform on a matched set of Guadagnini instruments, hand crafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between  c.1743 -1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy.
