About this video: More than just an ordinary concert, Quartet and Country is a much loved project of the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) – one that seeks to find common ground between Western art music and the songlines of this country.

A multi-faceted event comprising two concert programs of top Australian composers and a Q&A session, it celebrates new Australian music written and performed by some of the country’s leading voices including Lou Bennett and Stephen Pigram, William Barton and the ASQ.
