  • With a rich history spanning 30 years, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has established a strong national profile as an Australian chamber music group of excellence, performing at the highest international level. From its home base at the University of Adelaide, Elder Conservatorium of Music, the ASQ delivers a vibrant annual artistic program encompassing performances, workshops, commissions and education projects across Australia and abroad.

    Violist Stephen King and cellist Sharon Draper are the current members and Artistic Directors of the ASQ. In 2015, they are joined by invited guest violinists to present the Quartets performance season, whilst working behind-the-scenes to recruit two permanent violinists to the Quartet.

    Q U A R T E T

    The Quartets performance calendar for 2015 comprises its National Season featuring three unique concert programs presented in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney; its own flagship festivals in the Southern Grampians and Margaret River; regional touring and an international tour to Italy in May.

    The members of the ASQ are privileged to perform on a matched set of Guadagnini instruments. Hand crafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between c.17431784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy, these exquisite instruments were brought together through the vision of Ulrike Klein. The instruments are on loan to the Australian String Quartet for their exclusive use through the generosity of Ulrike Klein, Maria Myers and a group of donors who have supported Ngeringa Arts to acquire the viola.

    Stephen King played violin while growing up in Canberra and turned to the dark side (viola) after all but completing an architecture degree in Brisbane. Stephen holds a Doctorate in Chamber Music from the University of Maryland. His teachers include Elizabeth Morgan, James Dunham, and Michael Tree of the Guarneri Quartet. From 1997 Stephen was violist of the Coolidge String Quartet based in Washington D.C. and also Associate Principal Viola of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and a member of the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. Stephen returned to Australia in 2003 to join the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Since 2012 he has performed with the Australian String Quartet.

    Sharon Draper began her career as a freelance cellist with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO), Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Academy of Melbourne Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria. After joining the Australian Chamber Orchestras (ACO) Emerging Artists program, she toured extensively with the ACO, was appointed to the MSO, and founded the Hopkins String Quartet. In 2011 she studied in Berlin and toured with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Spira Mirabilis Chamber Orchestra. Sharon joined the Australian String Quartet in 2013 and this year will also perform as a guest with the Australian World Orchestra, and guitarist Slava Grigoryan.

During the past decade she has dedicated her energies to Chamber Music and was a founding member of Freshwater and Firebird Trios. She now devotes her considerable gifts to special projects, especially her duo with pianist/composer Joe Chindamo alongside her part-time role in the Australian Chamber Orchestra and ACO2 educational programme.

    Paul Wright has performed with leading ensembles and orchestras in Australia and overseas. Deeply involved in the performance practice of music from 18th and 19th centuries, he has performed in numerous early music ensembles. He has been guest concertmaster of the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra and the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. Paul has been on the faculty at the Australian National Academy of Music and is currently Head of Strings at the University of Western Australia.
