In the first of its 2020 concert series showcasing classical music with a uniquely Australian edge, THE PHOENIX COLLECTIVE presents “Intricate Machines” – a concert inspired by mechanics, wheels, cogs, precision, construction and repetition.

Audiences will experience the complexity of Reich’s ‘Different Trains’ for CD and live quartet, Pärt’s mesmerizing ‘Fratres’, Bach’s ‘Art of Fugue’ and Dvořák’s masterpiece ‘The American’ string quartet.

Launched by Charmain Gadd at her Crossroads Festival in 2018, the Phoenix Collective Quartet is a premier string quartet whose members come from the ranks of national and international orchestras such as Opera Australia Orchestra, Canberra Symphony, Sydney Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, Kammer Philharmonie Köln, Boston Symphony, and Academy of St Martin in the Fields. Founded and led by violinist Dan Russell, an accomplished performer here and abroad, it also features Yuhki Mayne (violin), Ella Brinch (viola) and Andrew Wilson (cello).
