Glass at Port Phillip
Thu. 5 January 2017, 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm AEDT
The landmark architecture and sweeping coastal views of Port Phillip Estate’s cellar door are the perfect setting in which to experience the mesmerising string quartets of minimalism pioneer Philip Glass.
Renowned for their inventive programming and engaging performance style, Sydney’s Acacia Quartet are regularly featured on ABC Classic FM and Fine Music 102.5 FM. They have earned two ARIA Award nominations for 'Best Classical Album' and been a finalist for an APRA-AMCOS Art Music Award for Excellence.
They will perform the Australian premiere of Glass’s String Quartet No.7, written for the Nederland Dans Theatre, alongside Glass’s String Quartet No. 2 “Company” and works by Gershwin and emerging Australian composer Nick Wales.
Treat yourself with a pre-show dinner in the dining room before taking your seat in the cellar door for this unforgettable evening.
