Event details

Led by internationally acclaimed musicians David Griffiths (clarinet), Svetlana Bogosavljevic (cello) and Timothy Young (piano), Ensemble Liaison is lauded for its imaginative programs and stellar collaborations with leading Australian and international performers.

Singular in his artistry and colossal in his impact, Beethoven’s legacy is as far-reaching as they come. His 250th birthday year is an occasion for artists and audiences to celebrate his prolific gifts and make refreshing new connections. Keen arrangers themselves, Ensemble Liaison performs Beethoven’s Septet Op.20, arranged by the composer for trio. A glorious exploration of form and style, the suite is one of Beethoven’s most popular and successful works.

The Ensemble’s own Timothy Young puts on his composer hat in a further tribute to the great composer with his Fantasy inspired by one of the most famous and deceptively simple classical works ever written for piano, Für Elise. Ensemble Liaison’s transcription of Mussorgsky’s masterpiece Pictures at an Exhibition is a fitting conclusion to a concert where classical timelessness meets spontaneous re-invention.

‘Ensemble Liaison, with its superb bunch of friends, has continued to cement itself as one of Australia’s most accomplished chamber ensembles.’ Limelight magazine
