Kuss Quartet & Naoko Shimizu Australian tour programs

The Kuss Quartet was so excited about its Australian tour with violist Naoko Shimizu, they asked to bring two programs for this tour so they could play more quintets together. As well as quintets by Mozart and Brahms, they will also give the world premiere of a new Quintet by Musica Viva’s 2012 Featured Composer Gordon Kerry. The program is rounded out with quartets by Mozart, Smetana and Kurtag, with whom the Quartet has worked closely.
