New work for Syzygy Ensemble

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been commissioned by the Melbourne Recital Centre to write a new work for the Melbourne quintet, Syzygy Ensemble.  The piece will be premiered at the 2014 Metropolis Festival, as part of Syzygy’s program, ‘Logic’.

The commission came through a partnership between Melbourne University and the Melbourne Recital Centre, which then gave me the choice of which ensemble from it’s Local Heroes series I’d like to work with.  Luckily for me, Syzygy Ensemble was willing to have me write a new piece!


The piece itself will be around 8 minutes long and for the quintet of flute, clarinet, piano, violin and cello.
