Ensemble Liaison


Ensemble Liaison is a unique chamber music partnership formed in 2006 between David Griffiths (clarinet), Svetlana Bogosavljevic (cello) and Timothy Young (piano). As suggested by their name, collaborations form the basis of their artistic and musical vision, and partners to-date have included, Nemanja Radulovic, Peter Coleman-Wright, Cheryl Barker, Emma Matthews, Ray Chen, Henning Kraggerud, Anthony Marwood, Wilma Smith, Tony Gould, Caroline Henbest, Simon Oswell, Elizabeth Sellars, Roy Theaker, Fiona Sargeant, Monica Curro, Alex Henery, Mardi McSullea, Roger Jonsson, David Jones, Peter Wilson, Paul Grabowsky, Michael Leighton Jones, Greta Bradman, and principal members of the Australian Ballet.

Ensemble Liaison performed their debut concert for ABC Classic FM in 2006, which featured in “The best of Sunday Live" for that year, and their inaugural Concert Series was held at The Edge, Federation Square, Melbourne in 2007. In 2010 they were invited to relocate to the stunning Elisabeth Murdoch Hall at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Described by Limelight magazine as a ‘national treasure’, they have performed across Australia and New Zealand and in 2012 gave a series of festival performances in Central Europe. Critics have hailed their performances with superlatives such as “spellbinding", “flawless", “a revelation", “moving", “joyous", “polished", “stunningly blended", “engaging", “powerful and having boundless lyricism, enthusiasm and dexterity".

They have been regularly recorded for broadcast on ABC Classic FM and 3MBS and have released recordings on both the Melba Recordings and Tall Poppies labels. ENSEMBLE LIAISON was appointed Ensemble in Residence at Monash University in 2010.
