Flinders Quartet (FQ) is instantly recognisable as one of Australia’s most loved chamber music ensembles. A quartet for the twenty-first century, FQ approaches its third decade with acknowledged musical skill and maturity. The group's dynamic and stirring performances of a full spectrum of repertoire have audiences and critics articulating their esteem, and the quartet is a highly-respected force in Australian chamber music.
Committed to industry development, FQ regularly commissions and premieres works by Australian composers. FQ has previously commissioned and premiered works by Peter Sculthorpe, Katy Abbott, Ross Edwards, Elena Kats-Chernin, Paul Dean, Paul Grabowsky, Ian Munro, Iain Grandage, Andrew Ford, Calvin Bowman and Tom Henry. In 2016, FQ launched its Composer Development Program, working to further the career of emerging Australian composers.
