In conjunction with the exhibition ‘Infinite Horizons’- a major retrospective of the work of one of Australia’s greatest painters, Fred Williams – the Australian String Quartet will present a fascinating concert of Australian music that reflects the landscape that inspired Williams’ iconic paintings.
