If you couldn't be bothered scrolling down the page you can jump directly to 2005 or 2010.Concert 1, music for strings and harp, February 2001. A commitment to programming Australian music begins with our very first performance (and is still continuing!) There follows one of the great pieces of the solo harp repertoire, and then Mahler's glorious song for strings and harp, extracted from his turbulent fifth symphony. To conclude, one of the recognised masterpieces of the literature for string orchestra.
Concert 3, music for strings and percussion, March 2002. The addition of percussion to the string orchestra allows a composer to create a variety of unusual and fascinating sounds. In this concert we perform works ranging from Mozart's vibrant Serenata for strings and timpani to Sibelius' magical suite and Sculthorpe's memorial to his father. Also on the programme are string serenades from the English and Czech schools of composition.
Concert 4, dance and verse for strings, July 2002. A programme of twentieth century music, built around three works with literary connections. Britten's justly famous Serenade sets texts by six different poets; Nigel Butterley's Goldengrove was inspired by Gerard Manley Hopkins' Spring and Fall; the two short pieces for strings by William Walton originated as part of the score for Olivier's film of Shakespeare's play. The concert begins and ends with "dance" episodes: Eastern European from Bartók, and French from Peter Warlock.
Concert 5, Baroque and beyond: music for strings, November 2002. The third of Bach's magnificent Brandenburg Concertos precedes two seasonally appropriate Baroque works, while Villa-Lobos' homage to Bach in Brazilian style is matched with Respighi's loving look at old Italian music. Colin Brumby's piece for strings and harpsichord was inspired by Shakespeare's poem of the same name.
Concert 6, Eastern European classics for strings, February 2003. Tchaikovsky's Serenade is one of his most joyful compositions, and is counterpointed by Dvořák's elegiac Nocturne. Weiner and Lutosławski are represented by works based on their national musical traditions, while Brisbane composer Betty Beath's intense Lament commemorates the suffering occasioned by recent events in Kosovo.
Concert 7, music for recorder and strings, May 2003. A programme featuring one Baroque and one modern recorder concerto, and the world premiere performance of Colin Spiers' deep and evocative composition. We begin with Purcell's music for a Restoration tragedy and end with Biber's startling and sometimes eccentric battle suite. The recorder concerto by Arnold Cooke is also receiving its first performance in Australia.
Concert 8, three centuries of music for strings, August 2003. A concert given at The Garrison (Holy Trinity) Church in The Rocks as part of the church's "Concerts by Candlelight" series, and consisting of shortish, mostly well-known pieces.
Concert 9, music for guitars and strings, October 2003. The programme is built around two solo pieces and a double concerto for guitars. We begin with a short and energetic composition by Warwick Pulley, concertmaster of the Bourbaki Ensemble, and include a delightful suite by Gustav Holst. Alan Rawsthorne's Concerto for String Orchestra boasts a striking and powerful opening and continues with music which is by turns turbulent, elegiac, and serene.
Concert 10, string music from Britain and beyond, March 2004. Elgar's Introduction and Allegro is one of the great works in the English tradition of music for strings, while John Woolrich's meditative Ulysses Awakes is a recomposition of motives from Monteverdi's opera The Return of Ulysses. The St. Kentigern Suite by Scottish composer Thomas Wilson has been described as "dazzling" and "beautifully written for strings". We also include two "foreign" compositions having some kind of British connection: an Australian setting of English folk songs and a German piece written in memory of King George V.
Concert 12, young composers writing for strings, October 2004. Works written by composers ranging in age from the thirteen-year-old Mendelssohn to the (relatively) elderly Scriabin, all of twenty seven when he wrote his Andante for strings.Robert Davidson, Dodecahedron.

One of Grieg's best loved compositions, a poignantly beautiful English clarinet concerto, and the serenely elegiac Cantilena Pacifica of Richard Meale. The programme begins with Frank Bridge's intensely sorrowful Lament, commemorating a nine-year-old victim of the sinking of the Lusitania during the First World War.
Concert 16, tragic heroines: music for voice and strings, April 2006. In one of his last works, Benjamin Britten set to music the climactic scene from Racine's Phaedra, a story which ultimately goes back to Euripides. The centrepiece of Earl Kim's song cycle Where Grief Slumbers takes its text from Rimbaud's poem Ophelia. Our trio of tragic heroines is completed by Domenico Giannetta's suite based on motives from Adriana Lecouvreur, Cilea's opera depicting the tragic fate of the great French actress. The programme also includes the world premiere of a work written especially for this concert by talented young Sydney composer Alex Pozniak.Traditional, Dives and Lazarus (Jenny Duck-Chong, mezzo-soprano).

There is also a bright and tuneful saxophone concerto by a 20th century French composer, and early works by Mozart, Mendelssohn and Nielsen.Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Divertimento for strings in D major, K136.

Concert 20, requiems for strings, October 2007. Pieces by Shostakovich and Howells provide vastly different conceptions of a "requiem" for strings. The Shostakovich is a reflection of the composer's life under the oppressive Soviet regime, while the Howells adopts in its slow movement a more elegiac and consolatory idiom, having been written in part as a memorial to the composer's son. The circumstances underlying Christine McCombe's Of Distant Sadness are not particularised, but it is impossible to miss the depth of feeling expressed in its dark textures.Dmitri Shostakovich, Requiem for Strings.
Herbert Howells, Concerto for String Orchestra.
Christine McCombe, Of Distant Sadness.
