Formed as a piano trio in 2008, Strelitzia is a vibrant young ensemble enjoying praise for innovative programs ranging from classical to world, jazz and modern dance music.
Strelitzia is deeply committed to promoting Australian music by both emerging and established composers and has commissioned and premiered many new works.
Strelitzia Ensemble explores piano trios of extraordinary emotion, each inspired by someone important to the composer. From Haydn’s effervescent trio for his friend and pianist Therese Bartolozzi, whose wedding he had just joined in celebrating, to Shostakovich’s epic Piano Trio No.2, dedicated to the memory of his good friend Ivan Sollertinsky, the stories behind these adored works flourish under the hands of this talented ensemble.
