"While one might imagine that Mahler's wonderful orchestration in his Second Symphony “The Resurrection” is essential to his music, translating it to the sound-world of an eight hand two piano arrangement allows it to be heard quite differently, refreshingly and just as powerfully."

"Absolutely superb; supremely natural, with huge soundstage width… keeping the two pianos spatially distinct.” Audiophilia (Canada) 

Hidden gems 2014: "shines brilliant new light on this masterpiece" - The Guardian (Aus) 

"Outstanding...rare poetry, intimacy and introspection..and ‘honeyed nostalgia’" - Music Australia Music Journal (Web) 

"… a must-have for every Mahler-buff … required listening for any maestro-wannabe who dares pick up a baton" - The Australian Weekend Review

Independent release by Artico Ensemble (2012)

Chamber music by Mendelssohn, Rutter, Spohr, Paul Kopetz and more.

Artico Ensemble aims to bring good music to non-mainstream venues such as churches, art centres and private homes in metropolitan and regional Australia. They perform a diverse repertoire ranging from traditional chamber music pieces, well-known classics, lesser-known gems and engaging contemporary works written for the ensemble. A focus is to bring chamber music to audiences that may not be able to experience it live in established concert halls. In doing so, Artico has explored many wonderful suburban venues that are seldom used for live music performances, whose hidden potential as intimate concert venues is waiting to be realised.
