Flinders Quartet celebrates one of Australia's most inspirational contemporary musicians, Paul Dean, highlighting his genius as both a composer and performer. In a new work that reflects on the preciousness of youth and the wisdom of experience, Dean's first string quartet is based on the life of young violinist, Richard Pollett. Wolf's exuberant and vibrant "Italian Serenade" is counterbalanced by Brahms' autumnal clarinet quintet; a work full of life's beauty and the pain of regret.

'… 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
