About Ensemble Offspring

Ensemble Offspring is Australia's foremost new music ensemble, based in Sydney, with a core line up of flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and percussion. At Classical Next, we feature a quartet line up of internationally acclaimed core instrumentalists, Claire Edwardes (percussionist/artistic director), Zubin Kanga (piano), Jason Noble (clarinet) and Lamorna Nightingale (flute). With a 23-year history, the group embraces all modes of adventurous music making, which has brought to fruition the creation of over two hundred new works.

Ensemble Offspring is driven by a philosophy of promoting artistic integrity and challenging the way audiences perceive music. The 2019 Classical Next Showcase programme, 'Solitude', features two works written for the ensemble by Kate Moore and Andrea Keller. Both pieces use acoustic instrumental tones combined with pre-recorded electronics and especially commissioned video art of the Australian landscape.

Praise for the group:

“When it comes to championing new music, Ensemble Offspring walk the walk…” – CutCommon

“Expect anything & everything” – The Sydney Morning Herald

“Exciting, invigorating and good fun… the best new classical music initiative Sydney has seen in years” – The Australian
