Special Gala Concert featuring
Timo-Veikko Valve, cello

PETER SCULTHORPE  String Quartet No. 18
Jointly commissioned in 2010 by Edinburgh Festival for Tokyo String Quartet and Peter and Leila Doyle for Flinders Quartet

LUIGI BOCCHERINI String Quintet in D major Fandango

FRANZ SCHUBERT String Quintet in C major, D.956

Perhaps Australia’s most loved composer, Peter Sculthorpe said of his compositions that he viewed his whole output as one slowly emerging work. The same can certainly be said of Luigi Boccherini and Franz Schubert. Each of these works epitomises the canon of these three masters of the string quartet. In partnering with one of Australia’s greatest cellists, Timo-Veikko ‘Tipi’ Valve, FQ embarks on an exciting musical dialogue and journey.
