‘an incredible depth of understanding’ – THE AGE
‘playing of the highest order’ – CLASSIKON
Founded in 2010 by four friends with a passion for chamber music, the Acacia Quartet has quickly won great respect for their programs which often couple established repertoire with the unorthodox.
The quartet has been invited to Berlin by the Raphael Foundation to perform and record the string quartets Nos. 1, 2 & 6 by Günter Raphael (1903-60) in May 2017. Their program at Delmar Gallery will include the first of these quartets in E Minor, characteristic of Raphael’s early composition style. It will be complemented by one of Mozart’s most famous and late string quartets – String Quartet No. 15 K421, the second of the quartets dedicated to Haydn and the only one of the set in a minor key.
