From Dmitri Shostakovich to Sofia Gubaidulina, Russian artists over the centuries have frequently expressed defiance through their music to create works resonating with the spirit of resistance against political oppression. 

Be immersed in this extraordinary emotional intensity together with the mesmerising laser artistry of Melbourne audio-visual artist Robin Fox for a program which brings Shostakovich’s String Quartets No. 7, Op. 108, and No. 11, Op. 122 together with Gubaidulina’s String Quartet No. 2. These works will be preceded by Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov’s moving “Icon” for String Quartet

KLASSIK underground is supported by Ulrike Klein AO.

All the artists involved in this concert would like to express their solidarity with the people of Ukraine and the victims of the current violent conflict imposed upon its borders. 

Whilst it is not mandatory to wear masks to enter KLASSIK underground we encourage patrons to protect themselves by wearing a mask.
