Once in a while a collaboration reaches the heart of why we make music. This Musica Viva Australia concert honours such a collaboration, built on the longstanding friendship between award-winning classical guitarist Karin Schaupp and the renowned Flinders Quartet.

For this tour, composer Carl Vine has created a new work to be premiered by Karin and the Flinders, commissioned by a longstanding Musica Viva Australia subscriber wishing to immortalise the joyous memory of her late daughter.

Accompanying this celebration of life and music is Imogen Holst’s moving Phantasy Quartet; and Southern Cross Dreaming by Australia’s Richard Charlton. Deliciously contrasting works for guitar and strings from three very different Italians round out the program, ending with Boccherini’s fiery Fandango.

Schaupp lives up to her reputation as one of the world’s most accomplished classically trained guitarists.
