Ensemble Trivium is a collective of Brisbane’s finest classical musicians,
performing chamber music featuring the flute.
Since 2015, Ensemble Trivium has been dazzling audiences with their fresh, vibrant programming and inspired combinations of instruments.
Based in Brisbane, Ensemble Trivium performs a range of traditional and contemporary chamber repertoire, including commissions of new works and unearthing hidden gems. Various combinations of the group include flute, violin, viola, cello, double bass, clarinet, voice, piano and percussion.
In 2017/18, Ensemble Trivium was awarded two Arts Queensland grants for their project “Locally Sourced,” which saw the world premiere of five newly commissioned pieces by well known Brisbane composers Robert Davidson (Topology), John Parker (Trichotomy), Steve Newcomb, Rafael Karlen, and Thomas Green.
“Locally Sourced” delighted audiences with a unique fusion of jazz and classical elements with performances at
ABC Brisbane, Redland Performing Arts Centre, and Music By the Sea Series in Sandgate.
The pieces featured flute, clarinet, bassoon and marimba/percussion.
