For this performance, the Quartet presents a beguiling programme of music from the nineteenth century to the present.  Beginning with Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting and beautiful Tenebrae (‘Darkness’), the programme also includes Australian composer Matthew Hindson's pulsating TechnoLogic for string quartet, and finally, Felix Mendelssohn’s shimmering String Quartet No. 2, completed in 1827 when the composer was just 18 years old.
