St John's Anglican Church, 379 Halifax Street, Adelaide 

Be transported to the bustling street culture of Paris in the 1920's, where six young avant-garde composers shared ideas, challenged the artistic establishment, and harnessed their own musical wit. Join the musicians in the garden following the performance, and chat over barista-made beverages by Roving Cafe.  This concert brings together wind quintet and piano in Poulenc’s satirical Sextet, alongside L’Album des Six for solo piano, and quintets by Milhaud and Ibert.

Tickets: Adult $35 / Conc $25 / Students $15

S.A. performers will be situated in various places around the gallery, playing live along with audio tracks from interstate players.

Performances including spoken word from composers, and live music, with a total duration of approximately 20mins in the Polar Gallery. Admission is free. There will also be opportunities to meet and talk to the artists between performances.

Three composers. Three Perspectives of This Time.


We commissioned three composers to draw on the thoughts and feelings arising from the global pandemic of 2020. In collaboration with composers, players and a sound engineer, we explored ways in which elements of spontaneity and deep connection might still be present in a very different form of “chamber music” - one in which recordings were made from isolation, and following the guidelines of physical distancing. The resulting trilogy is available online from Dec 14 2020 at


We are delighted to be working with composers Jakub JANKOWSKI, Luke ALTMANN and Peter De JAGER and audio engineer Sam LENCH.

Kegelstatt is dedicated to facilitating approachable experiences of great works and lesser known gems of the chamber music repertoire, especially those rarely heard live due to their scoring for non-standard combinations of instruments.
