During this unprecedented season of hibernation, the ASQ continues its mission of championing, and sharing Australian music. A new initiative, ASQ Encore, will continue to give voice to a range of composers from across the country.

The Quartet has identified several Australian composers they would like to approach to contribute towards this project. Up to 10 Australian composers will be commissioned to write works for string quartet of encore duration. These pocket-sized works will be rehearsed, performed, recorded, collated, and distributed by the Australian String Quartet through its Australian Anthology digital distribution channels.

With your support, funds raised will directly contribute to the creation of new Australian works.

Composers will be approached in May, as funds are secured, and will be asked to deliver their works to the ASQ by 31 August 2020 for world premiere by the end of 2020. Once complete, the ASQ will also be sourcing funds to contribute to associated recording fees and costs associated with the digital release of the works.

Help us support our Australian composers through ASQ Encore.

Double the value of your donation! Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia’s ACF Boost program, every dollar you preference to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $5,000.

For over 30 years, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable string quartet performances for national and international audiences.

Dedicated to musical excellence with a distinctly Australian flavour, the ASQ’s purpose is to create chemistry and amplify intimacy through experiences that connect people with string quartet music.

From our home base at the University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium of Music, we reach out across Australia and the world to engage people with an outstanding program of performances, workshops, commissions and education projects.

Our distinct sound is enhanced by a matched set of 18th century Guadagnini instruments, handcrafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between c.1743 and 1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy. These precious instruments are on loan to the ASQ for their exclusive use through the generosity of UKARIA.
