How do you, as a string quartet, connect with the world around you? How do you incorporate pressing issues and current events into your programming? In intensive collaboration with the actress, musician, and scientific researcher Lou Bennett – an authority in the field of Aboriginal languages – the members of the Australian String Quartet try to give meaning to these questions. Together, these artists from Australian soil bring to life their roots.

Founded in 1985, the Australian String Quartet represents the string quartet on the oldest continent. The players feel closely connected to their own culture and are committed to challenging programs with a clear Australian touch.
