Hamer Quartet – Presented by The Melbourne Chamber Orchestra

The Hamer Quartet is one of Australia’s finest chamber ensembles.

Formed in 2006, Hamer Quartet were winners of the 2009 Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition, taking out the Audience Prize, the First Prize for String Quartets and the Musica Viva Grand Prize for best Australian Ensemble.

In 2010, they were nominated as one of the Top 100 most influential by THE AGE magazine, and voted ‘Best Newcomer’ by the ABC Limelight awards.

In the same year, the quartet were fellows at Australian National Academy of Music.

Hamer Quartet has performed extensively across Australia and overseas, including performances at the Norwich and Norfolk Chamber Music Festival in the UK and Pro Quartet in Paris, as well as studying across Europe, including Prussia Cove International Musicians Seminar with Andras Kellar, and Germany and Vienna with such outstanding musicians as Hatto Beyerle, Gerhard Schultz, Paul Katz, Heime Muller and Barbara Westphal.

Recently reformed, they present iconic quartets by Beethoven and Dvorák, with the Victorian première season of Lachlan Skipworth’s Japan-inspired quartet, Yamagoe.
