Phoenix Trio (Lina Andonovska (flute)/Alexina Hawkins (viola)/Harold Gretton (guitar) come together to reimagine chamber music masterpieces alongside recently penned compositions for this unique combination. Collectively, the performers have performed with some of the most acclaimed ensembles on the globe including Eighth Blackbird, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Kammerakademie Potsdam and the Deutsches Kammerorchester and individually have growing reputations as international soloists and chamber musicians. The trio formed in 2008 when they were all students at the Australian National University. After parting ways for a decade, the trio have come together to perform a series of concerts around the globe during the 2018/2019 season including a world premiere composition by Melbourne-based composer Samuel Smith, which came to creation by a successful crowd-funding campaign. They hav performed as part of Sundays @ Noon at the Hugh Lane Gallery (Dublin) and the ‘Konzerte im Schloß Glienicke’ series (Berlin), as well as Melbourne’s iconic arts space fortyfivedownstairs. They are fondly named after their favourite haunt and hang out during their student days.
