ELISION is Australia's premier new music ensemble. The group has a reputation for delivering authoritative and virtuosic interpretations of complex, unusual and challenging aesthetics often developed in close collaboration with the composer and these Berlin concerts showcase the quality of these relationships. From the use of improvisation as a creative laboratory to inform Richard Barrett's notated musics to Liza Lim's understandings of Australian indigenous aesthetics and their application to her cello solo 'Invisibility' , from Evan Johnson's miraculous demands upon the voice to Aaron Cassidy's explorations of instrumental performance as choreography, many of the programmed works exist, excitingly, through testing extremes of performance capacities. And in addition there is a rare opportunity to hear Klaus K Hübler's 'Grave e sfrenato' for solo oboe performed by Peter Veale. ELISION's performance history in Berlin began in 2001. This aspect of the concert series is reinforced by the Berlin presence of many composers such as Chris Dench, Richard Barrett, Aldo Clementi and Liza Lim all of whom have had DAAD residencies in the city of Berlin. So it is with great pleasure that the ensemble returns to Berlin to perform new and recent work written specifically for the musicians of the group.
Featured non-Australian music: Richard Barrett, Aldo Clementi, Evan Johnson, Simon Steen-Andersen, Ming Tsao
