St Lawrence String Quartet & Diana Doherty: concerts, masterclasses and more
The St Lawrence String Quartet and Diana Doherty perform in Melbourne tonight; the third last concert of their current tour.
Yesterday the St Lawrence String Quartet performed in Hobart as part of Musica Viva’s CountryWide program. They’ve also given a masterclass in Brisbane, tutored Musica Viva Rising Star ensemble the Enigma String Quartet, and tomorrow give a private masterclass for ANAM students who are so dedicated they’ve agreed to come in on a public holiday to spend one-on-one time with this world-class ensemble. Oboe fanatics are also giving up their public holiday for the chance to work with Diana Doherty in Perth tomorrow evening.
If you haven’t been able to make it to one of these concerts, and you can’t attend the remaining Perth or Melbourne concerts, you can listen to a concert online for a limited time at ABC Classic FM’s website. And while you’re there, make some time to listen to an interview with 2012 Featured Composer Gordon Kerry, whose Elegy for String Quartet has been one of the talking points of this tour.
