Celebrated for many years as one of Australia's leading chamber groups, the New England Ensemble has recently re-formed and is once again delighting lovers of fine music throughout Australia and beyond.
During the Ensemble's original eight year residency at the University of New England (1975-82), they undertook numerous successful international tours throughout Asia, Europe and America.
Asian highlights include performing at the opening of the Hong Kong Arts Centre and being the first Australian group to appear for Japanese network NHK.
European engagements have included broadcasts for the BBC London, Sender Freies Berlin, Suisse Romande Geneva and Radio Bern, as well as concerts in major venues in England, Switzerland and Italy - where they also undertook two comprehensive tours for Gioventu Musicale.
The group has also given concerts at major festivals and conferences in America and Canada.
Active commissioners and performers of new music, the Ensemble has premiered works by Australians Peter Sculthorpe, Graeme Koehne, Felix Werder, Ann Ghandar and Kim Jones, as well as international composers such as Canadian Talivaldis Kenins, British John McCabe and Swiss Ernst Widmer amongst others.
At the national level the Ensemble has performed extensively for both Musica Viva and the ABC - giving frequent live broadcasts in the Sydney Opera House Midday Music series, as well as prerecorded radio and television performances.
They have released several commercial recordings for the Cherry Pie label. In the intervening years all four members have enjoyed highly successful careers, as principals for Australia's leading orchestras and ensembles, as soloists and as educators within Australia's major tertiary music schools.
