Treasured chamber musicians Claire Edwardes and Bernadette Harvey have been collaborating for over 10 years and have featured in many national series and festivals including ABC Sunday Live (Sydney Conservatorium/Eugene Goossens Hall), Aurora Living Music Festival (Western Sydney), Ozasia Festival (Adelaide) and Australian Festival of Chamber Music (Townsville). They performed the Australian premiere of ‘The Axe Manual’ by Harrison Birtwistle as well as Kevin Puts ‘Ritual Protocol’, and have had duo works written for them by Australian composers Alex Pozniak, Cyrus Meurant and Tim Dargaville.

“The consummate skills of Edwardes and Harvey were confirmed in the final work by Birtwistle…it was an appropriate conclusion to a smartly curated concert of challenging and beguiling woks from two inspiring performers.” RealTime
