Inventi Ensemble are masters of classical repertoire, re-inventors of past works, and performers of the new.
This dynamic new chamber ensemble run by artistic directors Ben Opie (oboe) and Melissa Doecke (flute), collaborates with Australia’s finest soloists and chamber musicians. Inventi musicians have performed at BBC Proms, London’s Southbank, at music festivals globally, pop-up venues and community spaces. Passionate about regularly performing Australian music, Inventi Ensemble have commissioned many new works making them an exciting new voice in Australian music.
Beyond Swan Lake highlights the true nature of Inventi Ensemble, masters of classical repertoire, re-inventors of past works and performers of the new. Taking exquisite traditional repertoire, the Ensemble reinvents highlights from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake in true Inventi style. To contrast they perform the world premiere of a new work titled ‘October in the Chair’ written for them by brilliant Australian composer Melody Eotvos based on the short story of the same name by Neil Gaiman. These two works are combined with Jean Cras’ divine early 20th century Quintette for flute, violin, viola, cello and harp.
