A Classical Afternoon at Guildford Vineyard
2 December 2018

Bring your own picnic lunch, collect a blanket and pillows from Cellar Door, and find a spot in the grounds. Enjoy a wonderful recital program by Affinity Quartet in the Barrel Room at 3pm.

Affinity Quartet is celebrated for taking listeners deep into the classical chamber music experience through their absorbing musical interpretations.’ (Play On Music) For this performance, the Quartet presents a beguiling program of music from the nineteenth century to the present. Beginning with Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting and beautiful Tenebrae (‘Darkness’), the program also includes Australian composer Matthew Hindson's pulsating TechnoLogic for string quartet, and finally, Felix Mendelssohn’s shimmering String Quartet No. 2, completed in 1827 when the composer was just 18 years old.
