QUATUOR DEBUSSY

Saturday 7 November 2020  |  6:30PM


REQUIEM BY CANDLELIGHT

Performing up to 80 concerts a year around the globe at leading venues such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus and the Théâtre du Châtelet and Musée du Louvre in Paris, Quatuor Debussy are among the most exciting cultural innovators on the concert stage, often dispensing with scores and music stands to enable a more direct, personal communion with the listener.

On a tour shared with the Melbourne Recital Centre, Spring Bay Mill Tasmania and the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House, Quatuor Debussy make their debut at UKARIA with an unforgettable rumination on life and death: Haydn’s Seven Last Words and Peter Lichtenthal’s stunningly beautiful 1802 transcription of Mozart’s Requiem – performed entirely from memory by candlelight.
