Since winning the ANAM Chamber Music Competition in their inaugural year, Affinity Quartet has established itself as one of Australia’s leading string quartets. Their international touring has included critically acclaimed performances in Europe at the Amsterdam String Quartet Biennale, Festival Les Voix Intimes Belgium, Fondazione Cini Venice, Mirabell Palace Salzburg; and in the UK at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Southbank Centre, City Music Society, and Prussia Cove International Musicians Seminar. The quartet is known for innovative programs traversing the string quartet’s diverse history, including Australian commissions, world premières by Jack Symonds, Matt Laing and Darrin Archer (AU), and Australian premières of the complete string quartets of Leos Janáček and Pavel Haas; Benjamin Britten and Sir Andrzej Panufnik. Affinity has been a featured ensemble in Melbourne’s underground classical series Play On Music, and ensemble-in-residence at Shepparton Festival, Kennedy Nolan Architects, and 75 On Reid. In 2021-22 Affinity Quartet are Melbourne Recital Centre Local Heroes.
