About the artists
Regarded as a national treasure, Ensemble Liaison is internationally acclaimed for its spell-binding performances, innovative programs and brilliant collaborations with leading artists.
About the concert
Their first performance of the year in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall premieres a new trio, Out of Darkness: Dawn, a charming work by one of Australia’s leading composers, Paul Stanhope.
John Dowland’s In Darkness Let Me Dwell was the inspiration behind Stanhope’s new work, encouraging the trio to continue their exploration of this early music with extraordinary works by Carissimi and Corelli.
Finishing with an epic musical journey, the trio’s own special transcription of Mussorgsky’s timeless masterpiece, Pictures at an Exhibition is engaging and powerful. An animated, intimate and joyous event not to be missed.
