Audience Comments
  • It was a wonderful, varied, fabulous, stirring performance. So grateful that I was there to experience it…The individual performances were virtuosic.
  • That was hands down the BEST concert I have ever seen, and I have been to a LOT of chamber music concerts.
  • Thanks Chimera for your beautiful playing today. Writing can be such a solitary act it's just awesome to finally share the work and hear it played by amazing musos whom I admire greatly!! (E. Jayakumar -composer).

  •  I just went to an amazing concert with Chimera Ensemble -spectacular playing by each and every one of them. The Kodaly was lush, the Borodin breathtaking and The Brahms was incredible...A wonderful concert.
  •  GREAT performance last Sunday – be sure not to miss the one at Cottesloe Civic Centre. World Class!
  • Please pass on our congratulations to the ensemble for last Sunday’s concert. As a concert goer of many years, I have never heard such amazing playing. It sounded like a full orchestra. Such spirit and energy with superb intonation and articulation. The Haydn was a revelation. Altogether a superbly programmed concert – and the afternoon tea was very good. Thanks for such wonderful entertainment.
  • Just to let you know that we attended their concert last night and it was absolutely magnificent. The ensemble belonged in the Conservatorium of music or on a bigger stage, not at some church hall. Amongst us were other tango enthusiasts and Piazzolla’s tangos were played with such intensity, passion, and sheer musicianship. We had goose pimples and they have reinstated my interest in Piazzolla.
