Glass Dean Mendelssohn

Philip Glass String Quartet no 3 Mishima
Brett Dean String Quartet no 1 Eclipse
Mendelssohn String Quartet in D major op 44 no 1

Philip Glass reflects upon the life of the iconic poet Yukio Mishima in a work of great evocative power.  Brett Dean’s art is driven by serious concerns responding to events of the refugee crisis, through music of haunting eeriness and explosive anger reaching towards the hope for peace.  Mendelssohn’s radiant string quartet marshals the full resources of his prodigious musicality in a virtuosic creation of musical sunshine. With all the ecstatic brilliance of the composer’s most joyful music, the quartet reminds us of music’s power to revive the spirits.
