The musicians of Ensemble Liaison bring together expertise gleaned from years of study at some of the world's greatest musical institutions in the United States, Russia and Italy. In their hands, the clarinet trio is an instrument of brilliant colour and boundless imagination.
Beethoven's B-flat Trio is a joyous remnant of a time when woodwind instruments were an exciting new novelty, while Ian Munro's work, written especially for Ensemble Liaison, brings the clarinet trio into the modern day. Completing the program is the trio's own arrangement of Igor Frolov's Concert Fantasy on classic Gershwin numbers.
Beethoven - Clarinet Trio in B-flat major, op 11
Munro - Aus Tiefer Not Schrei' Ich Zu Dir (Out of the Depths I Cry to You)
Frolov - Concert Fantasy on Themes from Porgy and Bess (arr Young/Griffiths)
The morning concert series features performances by leading Australian and international classical ensemble artists, with pre-concert tea, coffee and cake.
