Auric Quartet

‘Superbly matched, artistically, temperamentally and intellectually’ according to the violinist and string mentor William Hennessy, the Auric Quartet brings together four of Australia’s finest emerging musical talents.

Formed in April 2012, the quartet ‘exhibits a rare combination of technical skill, musical maturity and a unified and exciting vision for its future.’ The quartet made its debut at the 2013 Perth International Arts Festival, performing works by Bartók, Britten and Adès.

The Auric Quartet is currently the Associate Ensemble‐in‐Residence at the Australian National Academy of Music; the 2013/2014 Four Winds Festival Visiting Ensemble‐in‐Residence in Bermagui/Bega, NSW; and one of two aspiring quartets involved in the Australian String Quartet’s mentorship program, The Quartet Project.
