We are delighted to be presenting our 13th year of EL & Friends in 2019. It’s always a special event to share the stage with a great singer and to open the season we are excited to welcome back one of our favourite singers, Emma Matthews, for an intimate collaboration centered around the remarkable Les Illumination by Benjamin Britten. It will also feature Gustav Mahler and a superb chamber version of the final movement of his 4th Symphony.
In concert two we will be joined by three wonderful string colleagues to perform Weber’s Clarinet Quintet and Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet.
To conclude the season we are looking forward to the extraordinary virtuosity of Serbian Violinist Nemanja Radulović, a dear friend to us and one of the most exciting fiddle players on the world stage. Our previous concerts with Nemanja have been veritable fireworks and highlights of the Ensemble Liaison calendar.
The Ensemble Liaison & Friends series has become known as a tour de force renowned for imaginative and innovative programming, setting the trend for brilliant collaborations with leading artists.
The Ensemble Liaison will also record its fifth CD in 2019 featuring new Australian works written for Ensemble Liaison by Elena Kats-Chernin, Mary Finsterer, Michael Dooley and Ian Munro.
Contributions from individual donors will assist Ensemble Liaison with the expense of domestic travel for guest artists and costs associated with presenting the 2019 Series, including publicity, brochure production and administration costs.
The final result will be three engaging concerts of chamber music of the highest level.
