After a fantastic tour, and an amazing week in Armidale coaching young australian chamber musicians, we have returned to Britain. We played concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Newcastle, Coffs Harbour and Hobart, in some truly spectacular venues. The schedule was intense, but the experience was incredibly rewarding thanks to the well-oiled organisation of Musica Viva, and the remarkable people working there.

In Armidale we met some young aspiring groups, many of which can look forward to a long professional career. They astounded us with their dedication and receptive attitude! We certainly learned at least as much as they did!

We will miss Australia and the incredible people we met there profoundly.
