composer & performer
Sydney Chamber Orchestra
founded and conducted by Romano Crivici (1992 - 2000)
For the occasional project requiring orchestral forces, I created the “Sydney Chamber Orchestra” Formed around the core of the Elektra String Quartet, as well as friends from the Sydney Symphony, the Sydney Chamber Orchestra allowed me to enjoy the more traditional classical format and repertoire.
Some of the recording and broadcast projects that we undertook included:
Symphony No 1, Romano Crivici “As Night Follows Day” (2001) broadcast on ABC RN and theme music for ABC Radio National
as well as many public performances.
