Tinalley String Quartet
Internationally acclaimed for its ‘addictive sound’ and ‘intuitive’ music making, Australia’s Tinalley String Quartet has established itself as one of the finest string quartets of its generation since forming in 2003.
Awarded First Prize at the 9th Banff International String Quartet Competition and Grand Prize at the 2005 Australian Chamber Music Competition, the Quartet has performed throughout Europe, America, Canada and Australia to critical acclaim. International highlights have included appearances at the Vienna Musikverein, Berlin Konzerthaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Bremen Die Glocke, Frankfurt AlteOper, as well as in Paris, Hamburg, Vancouver, San Francisco, Toronto and New York.
In Australia, the Quartet has an active recital schedule, presenting an annual recital Series at the Melbourne Recital Centre and Sydney Opera House with such diverse guest artists as actor John Bell, cellist LiWei Qin, soprano Greta Bradman and independent vocalist Lior. It has appeared at the nation’s premier festivals including the Adelaide Music Festival; Perth International Arts Festival; Canberra International Music Festival; Huntington Festival; Port Fairy Festival; Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. In 2017/18 Tinalley will be Quartet in Residence at the Coriole Music Festival in the McLaren Vale.
The Quartet has been broadcast worldwide by ABC Classic FM, CBC Canada, SRW2 and HR2 Kultur Germany, Radio France and Public National Radio, The Netherlands and its CD release of Haydn’s Opus 20 Quartets garnered international praise, UK’s Strad Magazine singling the recording out as ‘recommended’ listening, describing the performances as “technically assured, warm-toned, beautifully blended and ideally balanced”. In March 2018, the Quartet will release a new disc of Ravel and Debussy’s String Quartets on the DECCA label.
