Formed last year, Ensemble Pendulum is a group of young musicians eager to share their favourite Baroque music with you.
Recently back from a cultural exchange in Verona, Pendulum experienced playing and hearing music of the baroque masters in voluptuously beautiful Italian churches many hundreds of years old.
Students of the Historical Performance Unit at the Sydney Conservatorium, these musicians have studied under Neal Peres Da Costa, Rachael Beesley and Hans-Dieter Michatz, as well as having the opportunity to play for international artists such as Tafelmusik, London Haydn Quartet and Richard Egarr. While in Italy Pendulum spent an amazing week working under the mentorship of Midori Seiler whose intimate musical knowledge was extremely inspirational.
Instruments include violin, viola, recorder, cello & harpsichord.
Two Boismortier Sonatas for Flute and Violin, a Corelli violin sonata, a Telemann flute sonata, a J.S. Bach trio sonata and a Locatelli trio sonata.
Posted by Belinda Keir on Jun 5th, 2016Three wonderful and passionate young people making gorgeous music. Great venue for chamber music like this. Thanks for making the space available to emerging musicians.
Posted by Annie Gard on Jun 5th, 2016Thank you Wayne and Gial for creating this soulful venue where the performers can relax and the audience feels involved. This acoustic venue is virtually unique as it creates the rare opportunity for unamplified performance to be intimately savoured. Wayne presents a program of concerts open to all, and presented by international stars and homegrown talent alike. Not even torrents of rain, flooding, and road closures could keep some audience members away because a concert at Humph Hall is not to be missed!
Posted by Lynsey Chandler on Aug 21st, 2016A warm and wonderful evening on a cold, stormy night. What an incredibly rare opportunity to hear live Baroque music with a charming and informative commentary by the musicians who love it. I speak for my husband and three friends when I say thank you Ensemble Pendulum and Wayne and Gial for a very special musical experience. And it was just down the road from home.
