FLINDERS QUARTET'S 2019 COMPOSER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Flinders Quartet’s Composer Development Program has been a highlight of the ensemble’s annual season since 2016. We invited Australian composers to submit a short work for string quartet to be workshopped by the members of the quartet and composition mentor, Stuart Greenbaum, resulting in a professionally recorded and live-streamed performance in June 2019.

Following this national call for submissions (which were reviewed anonymously), the composers invited to take part in FQ’s 2019 Composer Development Program were:

Oliver Beard, NSW
Joseph Franklin, NSW
Timothy Franklin, VIC
Simon Kruit, WA
Natalie Nicolas, NSW
Chloe Sinclair, NSW

These six composers will spend intensive time with the quartet and composition mentor, Stuart Greenbaum (Head of Composition at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music). The workshops will take place in Melbourne and will be open to the public, allowing aspiring composers to witness the creative process of other composers as well as demonstrating the participants’ compositional development. The workshops will culminate in a produced recording to be broadcast by media partner, 3MBS Fine Music Melbourne, and a public, live-streamed performance of the works with 5stream; thus providing the composers an invaluable reference and promotional tool, and documenting the development of chamber music in Australia.
