About the Australian String Quartet

Since 1985, the Australian String Quartet (ASQ) has created unforgettable string quartet performances for audiences around the world.

Dedicated to musical excellence with a distinctly Australian flavour, they aim to create chemistry and amplify intimacy through experiences that connect people with string quartet repertoire. From their home base at the University of Adelaide’s Elder Conservatorium of Music, they reach out across the world to engage people with an outstanding program of performances, workshops, commissions, and education projects.

Their distinct sound is enhanced by a matched set of 18th century Guadagnini instruments, handcrafted by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini between c.1743 and 1784 in Turin and Piacenza, Italy. These precious instruments are on loan for our exclusive use through the generosity of UKARIA.
