Formed over a decade ago in Melbourne the Flinders Quartet have two subscription seasons in Melbourne and one in Sydney, as well as performing at festivals and other projects.
I’m interested in the business of a quartet as they have similarities and differences to other SMEs. I think we can learn from each other, if we learn more about how each other operate.
Podcast series explores the business of the Flinders Quartet.
In this podcast Erica Kennedy discusses how they explore the music and uncover what the music is saying so they can drive change in the emotions of their audience. It is interesting how market and social research and understanding music has some parallels.
Erica doesn’t only perform classical music and she discusses how she switches between the styles.
- The performance is mostly about their interpretation, similar to how research insights are largely up to the interpretation of the data, but everyone will interpret differently

- Everyone takes away their own perspective of your interpretation depending on their own experience and what has happened before they are experiencing your interpretation
- Variety of activities complement each other
Podcast length: 10:45 minutes
