In an exciting first, Grabowsky will also join Flinders on stage using the seminal two part inventions by J.S. Bach as a starting point, followed by Kats-Chernin's popular Re-Inventions for recorder and string quartet (with Genevieve Lacey), and finishing with Grabowsky's musical commentary on each "Re-Invention" - a reinvention of the "Re-Inventions"!

Guest Artists: Paul Grabowsky (piano) and Genevieve Lacey (recorders)
Kats-Chernin a selection from "Re-Inventions"

'… both warm and intense … the internal balance and collegial understanding were a delight.' - The Age

'… one of Australia's finest.' - artsHub

'… a grippingly tense and virtuosic performance…' - North Shore Times

'They create wonderful new synergies, setting sparks flying as player bounced off player with the skill, simpatico and exhilaration of a jazz combination.' - Courier Mail

'… each player was constantly in touch with the others, so that the musicality was everything the composers could have hoped for.' - artsHub

'...full-blooded enthusiasm, a fine ear for lyrical content and an unfailing unanimity of intent.' -  The Age

'Flinders Quartet … deliver refined performances that are seductive, rich, layered and intimate … an almost relentless commitment to innovation and their growing fame is as much about extending the repertoire with commissioned newly created works.' - artsHub
