Ensemble Liaison

Described by Limelight magazine as a ‘national treasure’, Ensemble Liaison is one of Australia’s leading internationally acclaimed ensembles. Now in their 16th season, they are renowned for their captivating and engaging performances, recognised for imaginative and innovative programming, setting the trend for brilliant collaborations with leading artists such as Nemanja Radulovic, Anthony Marwood, Henning Kraggerud and Ray Chen. Critics have hailed their performances with superlatives such as “spellbinding”, “flawless”, “a revelation”, “moving” and “joyous”.

They have performed across Australia and New Zealand including a ten-concert tour for Chamber Music New Zealand, appearances at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Government House, UKARIA, Musica Viva Australia, Australian Festival of Chamber Music, Townsville, Port Fairy Spring Music Festival and the Woodend Winter Arts Festival, and in 2012 gave a series of festival performances in Central Europe.

The creation of new works is also a priority for Ensemble Liaison, with commissions by Paul Grabowsky, Ian Munro, Gordon Kerry, Tony Gould, Stuart Greenbaum, Elena Kats-Chernin, Jane Hammond, Michael Dooley, Thomas Reiner, Aleksander Sedlar, Mark Viggiani and Mary Finsterer. Countless arrangements by the trio have also formed an integral part of their programming and artistic vision.

They have regularly recorded for broadcast on the ABC Classic FM and 3MBS and have released recordings to international acclaim on both the Melba Recordings, Tall Poppies and EL Records. They were ensemble-in-residence at Monash University from 2010-2016.
