These three programs in our 2016 Melbourne Recital Centre Local Heroes series tell a tale of lineage from Mozart to the present day in Melbourne and as such, we celebrate our very own Stuart Greenbaum as FQ's first featured composer. Add in a new work by Elena Kats-Chernin and we couldn't be more excited about the year ahead. Our focus is always the eternal exploration and discovery of this most sacred of chamber ensembles and we look forward to sharing this immensely satisfying journey with you.
