Sartory String Quartet
The Sartory String Quartet formed at the beginning of 2003, as part of the Chamber Music program at the University of Western Australia. They perform pieces from the classical string quartet repertoire as well as some contemporary and jazz works. The name 'Sartory' comes from Eugene Sartory, who was a famous Italian bow maker.
Since their formation, the quartet has participated in several master classes with the Australian String Quartet and internationally acclaimed violinist Charles Castlemann.
The quartet was chosen to represent Western Australia in the 2005 World Expo in Aichi, Japan and have been guest artists at the Blackwood River Chamber Music Festival, held in the beautiful Swan Valley region south of Perth.
The Sartory String Quartet perform regularly at Lunchtime concerts and functions at the UWA and the WA Academy of Performing Arts and have also performed as part of the Darlington Chamber Music series.
Members of the quartet have participated in the Western Australian Youth Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra, and are winners of various concerto and solo competitions.
