The Australian Piano Quartet

Daniel de Borah (piano), Thomas Rann (cello),

‘This was a masterclass in non-verbal communication’ Limelight magazine

‘The ensemble, each a soloist and an individual in their own right performed this substantial programme with empathy, technical ease and exemplary musicianship’

‘The balance achieved by the quartet was superb – clearly the product of the affectionate communication between the four players. This palpably infused the fluency and sensitivity of the performance’ Limelight magazine

Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Technology, Sydney since 2011, the Australia Piano Quartet has established a reputation as one of Australia’s premier chamber music ambassadors. Through the commissioning of new works by seven Australian composers in 2015 alone and via its ground-breaking collaborative residency at UTS, APQ seeks to be a potent and forward-looking creative force on the Australian music scene.

Other highlights of the 2015 season include an eight concert series presented by the Sydney Opera House at the Utzon Room and two performances at the Melbourne Recital Centre. The Australia Piano Quartet appears at the Australian & New Zealand Festival of Literature & Arts as part of their current European tour which also takes in the Australian Embassy in Paris and the Barbican Centre [June 2nd
