Vision String Quartet

The conductor Jeffrey Tate once described the string quartet as ‘the most perfect expression of human behaviour’. Composers from Haydn to Adès have revelled in this most intimate and virtuosic of musical forms, awed by the sight of four musicians moving across a tightrope at speed.

The four young musicians that make up the Vision String Quartet add one extra element to this dextrous feat: they perform everything from memory. Repertory that might be familiar – Bartók’s astonishing Quartet No. 4, say, or Dvořák’s Quartet No. 13 – is utterly transformed.

This prizewinning Berlin-based quartet – praised as ‘amazingly vivacious, vivid and electrifying … completely fearless’ by Der Tagesspiegel – has gathered fans aplenty across Europe since forming in 2012, and here makes its thrilling Australian debut.

"The Vision String Quartet’s qualities in achieving an at times ferocious energy, along with a remarkable lightness and transparency of texture when required, was allied to incredible focus and ensemble cohesion."
— Limelight
"A solitary seat onstage signalled that this was to be no ordinary string quartet concert. ….. Freed from music stands and seats, their physical flexibility is mirrored by their extraordinarily intense focus on the music."
— The Age
"This informality does not result in a less serious approach to the execution of the music; indeed, it is quite the opposite. "
— Stage Whispers
"...rockstars of classical music."
— Classic Melbourne
