Zephyr Quartet is a bold and adventurous string quartet, delighting in the exploration of diverse music and forging dynamic collaborations. Since its inception in 1999 the quartet has shown a continued determination to expand the boundaries of art music and how it is received by audiences. A firm believer in the power of the string quartet as a medium to communicate and explore complex relationships between society and art, Zephyr has achieved an enviable reputation for artistic excellence, innovation and audience development as well as for being ‘Arguably Australia’s most lateral thinking and inventive ensemble’ (Music Australia).
Armed with the spirit of collaboration, Zephyr Quartet has become a leading exponent of collaborative arts practice, drawing inspiration from working with artists from diverse backgrounds, including theatre, dance, literature, visual art, environmental art, design, film and media art, to produce work that is vital, current and courageous. Recent collaborations include composing the score for and performing in Brink Productions’ hit theatre show The Aspirations of Daise Morrow (2015) and performing with the Australian Dance Theatre in its acclaimed Beginning of Nature at WOMADelaide (2016).
