Adelaide – Watch this space

Kegelstatt Ensemble

Now in its twelfth year of concerts in Adelaide, and its fourth in Melbourne, Kegelstatt Ensemble is comprised of gifted and passionate musicians who work together joyfully and fruitfully in bringing great chamber music to life. 

Kegelstatt (skittle alley) is the subtitle of Mozart’s trio for clarinet, viola and piano, composed, according to legend, in a single day after a game of skittles with friends. The themes of friendship and pleasure inherent in Mozart’s skittle alley story are central to the Kegelstatt philosophy, along with a mission to discover and present rare and great chamber music for unusual combinations of instruments, at the highest standard and with the utmost artistic integrity.
