‘Intricate machines’ in 2020 Tour Launch for Brilliant Quartet
In the first of its 2020 concert series showcasing classical music with a uniquely Australian edge, The Phoenix Collective presents “Intricate Machines” – a concert inspired by mechanics, wheels, cogs, precision, construction & repetition.
The imaginative program - an ode to the industrial revolution, the hum of a busy city and drive of a locomotive. Audiences will experience the complexity of Reich's 'Different Trains' for CD and live quartet, Pärt's mesmerizing 'Fratres', Bach's 'Art of Fugue' and Dvořák's masterpiece 'The American'.
Launched at Crossroads Festival in 2018, the Phoenix Collective Quartet is a premier string quartet whose members come from the ranks of national and international orchestras such as Opera Australia Orchestra, Canberra Symphony, Sydney Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, Kammer Philharmonie Köln, Boston Symphony, and Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Founded and led by violinist Dan Russell, an accomplished performer here and abroad, it also features Yuhki Mayne (violin), Ella Brinch (viola) and Andrew Wilson (cello).
