10 – 18 October
Following acclaimed seasons at the 2011 and 2014 Melbourne Festivals, the Australian National Academy of Music’s one–of–a–kind, purpose built performance space is back.
Created by theatrical innovators Bluebottle, ANAM Quartetthaus is an extraordinary fusion of music, architecture and design, offering a daringly intimate and breathtakingly visceral take on the traditional concert hall.
With musicians playing in the round, and only 52 seats in the venue, no audience member is ever more than two metres from the performers, making for an exceptionally unique concert experience.
The program showcases ANAM’s foremost musicians as they present a selection of repertoire from the rich history of the string quartet, featuring Joseph Haydn and more.
The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is dedicated to the artistic and professional development of Australia and New Zealand’s most exceptional young musicians. ANAM’s vision of musicianship is holistic: to develop future music leaders who are distinguished by their artistic skill, imagination, courage, and by their contribution to a vibrant music culture.
