The New England Conservatorium in association with Musica Viva Armidale proudly present one of Australia’s great composers, Elena Kats-Chernin and pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska performing a thrilling, unique experience of creation, expression and adventure.

Performing four hands at the piano and improvising live, second-to-second, the duo traverses the wondrous catalogue of Kats-Chernin’s music including from her CD Butterflying, in addition to presenting well-loved works in an utterly new light and unveiling new treasures.

Arcadia Winds was formed in 2013 by five like-minded young musicians from around Australia, who shared a love of playing together and a passion for chamber music. Graduates of the Australian National Academy of Music, they have played together in various combinations for years as members of the Australian Youth Orchestra. Each is an outstanding soloist in their own right. In its short history, Arcadia Winds (formerly the Arcadia Quintet) has won competitions and performed in leading venues and festivals, including the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival (2015) and the Four Winds Festival (2014 and 2016).


In 2015 they were selected as the first generation of Musica Viva’s prestigious artist development initiative – FutureMakers. The Arcadias participated in the AYO Chamber Players program at the 2015 Musica Viva Festival, so it is a special pleasure to welcome them as colleagues on the main stage.
