More info: 0439 648414,, Kindly supported by Nanda Taylor & Helen Ryan Lada Marcelja, Artistic Director - Montague Visiting Artists says "The final Visiting Artists concert for 2022 is on Saturday, November 19 and I think many of you will agree that we have left the best for last. The Affinity Quartet has had a very successful year. "In April they travelled to London and participated in the prestigious Wigmore Hall Quartet Competition ( and placed third in a highly competitive field of quartets from around the world. "Then, in August they were a Senior Quartet at the McGill International String Quartet Academy and worked with the best to further hone their craft

"Now, on Saturday, November 19, they are coming to Narooma with two amazing works, Haydn's String Quartet in B minor, Op 33 No 1 and Mendelssohn's String Quartet in F minor Op 80, as well as a new piece by Ingi Kim.

"Haydn described his Op.33 set of six quartets as having a ‘new and special’ style and sent the scores of all six to Mozart. Mozart was so impressed that he, in 1785, dedicated his six superb string quartets Op. 10 to Joseph Haydn.

"Mendelssohn’s sixth and final string quartet was composed just two months before his death in 1847. In this 30 minute work, subtitled Requiem for Fanny, Mendelssohn turns to the intimacy of string quartet writing to grapple with the sudden death of his only sister and closest confidante, producing one of his most musically incisive and arresting works.

"We hope you can join us for this wonderful concert."
