Australia Piano Quartet

Rebecca Chan, violin
Last night the Australia Piano Quartet played at the university of Technology Sydney in collaboration with journalism students who presented their work on asylum seekers. The students were engaging and how refreshing it was to hear asylum seeker issues
presented in an informed manner.

The Quartet played Bordersongs, a new work by Pozniak between student presentations. It was impressive and complemented the spoken texts well. Then we heard Strauss' Piano Quartet in C minor written when Strauss was 19 years old.

The concert made me think that we could do worse than to give the running of the nation over to young idealistic Australians. It would make a very nice change from the current mob.
