‘ELISION ensemble has gained an international reputation for performing the more daring and extreme forms of new music out there, and this concert…was no exception.’ Limelight
Internationally celebrated for close and longterm artistic relationships with composers, high level virtuosity, and a deep commitment to re-invent performance practice, ELISION tackles the wild sonic visions of Cat Hope, Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh, Liza Lim, Aaron Cassidy and Richard Barrett.
