Included in our concert to celebrate Oktoberfest are a combination of works by German Composers and Australian composers.

Two of the G’day Africa chamber works by Moya Henderson for clarinet,/bass clarinet, viola, cello and piano, the first G’day Africa has influences of several African styles of rhythm and music, the second G’day Africa is a lyrical peaceful work dedicated to Kevin Volans.

The Minature trio by Alfred Hill originally written for violin, cello and piano, with a part Alfred Hill later wrote for Clarinet in lieu of the violin part, in a new addition by Stiles Publications, the sole publisher of Alfred Hill’s music.

Chiffre IV by Wolfgang Rihm for bass clarinet, cello and piano is a sparsely textured work written in 1983.

Wilhelm Berger Trio for clarinet, cello and piano is from earlier times in contrast to the rest of the programme.

Charisma is an ensemble which continues to explore the repertoire for clarinet, cello and piano, and has a reputation for presenting concerts which display an eclectic variety of styles and repertoire. Australian Composers are featured in each program and they have commissioned and premiered many pieces in their years of concert giving.

We hope you can come and join us for a glass of champagne or wine ….or a german beer to celebrate the end of our 2008 season!
