Tin Alley String Quartet featuring Lior

  • Melbourne Recital Centre (map)

Although this doesn't feature saxophone or clarinet I think this will be a really special performance and a real treat to hear great singer songwriter Lior in an intimate setting with a world-class String Quartet. They will be premiering many new works as well. 

'In this musical narrative of love, loss and compassion, Tinalley premieres a new song cycle by Ade Vincent and Lior, plus three of Dvořák’s rousing love songs from his collection of Cypresses. These echoes of love cherished, tormented and forgotten, are paired with Barber’s haunting ‘Adagio’ from his String Quartet Op.11 and Lior’s achingly beautiful ‘My Grandfather’. 

In a final quest for peace, Lior and Nigel Westlake reimagine Sim Shalom (Grant Peace) from ‘Compassion’, merging the symphonic world with that of the string quartet. Ravel’s effusive String Quartet opens the program. Critics and public alike rejected the quartet when it was first performed, and yet now it is one of the genres most beloved works. At times wistful and at other times melancholic, even devastating; the work is in itself a reminder of the changeable nature of public sentiment.'
