“The future of Australian Chamber Music, the real deal.”
Tonight, Geelong experienced the real deal.
Our audiences usually don't hoot, whistle or stamp their feet...
but tonight they did!
Thanks Orava Quartet, for a superb concert.
The Orava Quartet, founded in 2007 by brothers Daniel Kowalik (violin) and Karol Kowalik (cello), Thomas Chawner (viola), and joined in 2011 by David Dalseno (violin), is one of the most exciting string quartets of its generation. Known for their passionate and engaging performances, they have been hailed by The Australian as “the future of Australian Chamber Music, the real deal.”
Orava Quartet has been invited to perform in Canada, the United States, United Arab Emirates, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Philippines, as well as for Queen Sofia of Spain and Pope Benedict XVI. As graduate Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Colorado, they had the privilege of working closely with the world-renowned Takács Quartet from 2012-2014. During this time the Quartet was selected to be part of the Juilliard String Quartet Seminar in New York City, and toured extensively in the US including at the National Gallery in Washington.
