FLINDERS QUARTET'S 2017 COMPOSER WORKSHOP & PERFORMANCE
After a supremely successful inaugural workshop in 2016, Flinders Quartet again invited applications from composers to submit a short work for string quartet to be workshopped by the members of the quartet and composition mentor, Mary Finsterer, to result in a professionally recorded live and streamed performance on 5 December 2017.
