The Australia Ensemble returns for its 31st year of concert-making at the University of New South Wales with the same spirit of adventure that has made their programs so notable. The second flute trio of Mozart-contemporary, Leopold Kozeluh, is a charming and sparkling start to the series, but will possibly be outshone by the first performance of a new String Sextet by Australian composer Mark Isaacs, winner of the Albert H. Maggs award.

This performance features the four string players of the Australia Ensemble (Dene Olding and Dimity Hall, violins; Irina Morozova, viola; and Julian Smiles, cello) with leading guest artists Yvette Goodchild, viola and Nathan Waks, cello. Francis Poulenc’s Flute Sonata is a superb instrumental piece that allows Ensemble flautist Geoffrey Collins opportunity to shine with pianist colleague Ian Munro.

The program concludes with Dohnanyi’s exuberant Sextet for piano (Ian Munro), clarinet (Catherine McCorkill), horn (Robert Johnson), violin (Dimity Hall), viola (Irina Morozova) and cello (Julian Smiles). It is an energised and vibrant start to yet another outstanding season at UNSW’s Sir John Clancy Auditorium.
