Reeds Bending, a new sensation in Australian chamber music. Instigated by Saxophonist Niels Bijl and Bassoonist Matthew Kneale, this reed quintet will present their inaugural concert at the 2024 Yarragon Winter Feast. They are teaming up with Clarinetists Jorja Withall and Mitch Berick, and Melbourne's own top oboist Rachel Bullen. They will present a varied program with music spanning several centuries of music history, ranging from Deprez and Bach to the great 20th century masters Debussy and Bartok. Interspersed with brand new envirorating works by Nico Muhly and Marc Mellits, and unexpected colourful arrangements embracing the heartwarming word of William Shakespeare.
