Ensemble Liaison & Friends is a unique concert series presented by three internationally acclaimed musicians – David Griffiths (clarinet), Svetlana Bogosavljevic (cello) and Timothy Young (piano).
Their first concert series in 2007 established the ensemble as a tour de force, renowned for imaginative and innovative programming, setting the trend for brilliant collaborations with leading artists. As their name suggests, collaborations form the basis of their artistic and musical vision with many fine musicians, singers, dancers, actors, puppeteers, conductors, choirs and improvisers from across Australia and beyond working with the ensemble since their inception to much critical acclaim.
Ensemble Liaison, the angelic Young Voices of Melbourne and the Exaudi Youth Choir cast their spell together in a concert that sings with national pride. With texts by Australian writers Les Murray, Judith Beveridge, Vincent Buckley and Michael Leunig, the concert features new works and arrangements by brilliant Australian composers Gordon Kerry, Ian Munro, Paul Stanhope, Lyn Williams, Paul Grabowsky, Ben van Tienen and Percy Grainger. An inspiring musical journey from ‘Driving to Adelaide’, ‘Holiday at Mentone’, secrets that friends have kept a lifetime, a missile and a little duck.
