AllotropyA new, experimental string quartet that plans to appear in unexpected places around Melbourne, Allotropy! presents their launch concert at Loop Bar on Saturday 26 September 2015.

Playing new works primarily by Melbourne composers, and older works presented in new ways, Allotropy! features Isabel Hede (violin), Kat Tsyrlin (violin and viola), Beatrix Pickett (violin and viola), and Luke Severn (cello).

The performance will feature their interpretation on some Bach Contrapuncti, Vaughan Williams, Philip Glass, as well as a new work for string quartet by Melbourne based composer Evan Lawson (adapted from an earlier work for flute, clarinet and voice).

The members of Allotropy! studied at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), The University of Melbourne and Monash University. They met through their study and professional engagements.

All members have extensive performance experience in solo, chamber and orchestral concerts in Melbourne, and other cities around Australia and internationally. Their passion for doing something different with music performance is the thread that brought them all together.
