“Concert by invitation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was a concert given by the orchestra as a 'thankyou' to an art gallery in Sydney which supports them. The music as always was superb - Vivaldi a perennial favourite.
A surprise was the Shostakovich which was quite wonderful.
A youthful and very talented orchestra, always a pleasure to attend their performances.

“Chamber/Classical Music with a Twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Chamber & Classical music isn't for everyone, but if you are in Sydney and you see they are performing, you would be well placed to see them. They generally take Classical music and put a slight twist on it.

“The best chamber orchestra in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Recently reviewed in the Guardian UK as the best chamber orchestra in the world, such praise is no exaggeration. We have been subscribing for over 10 years and there is not a concert that we do not leave feeling upbeat and on a high. The sheer energy of the ensemble is breathtaking and their music covers all tastes. Highly recommended.
