Hidden Curiosities is a new Kammerklang series championing existing, under-performed, Australian repertoire drawn from an open call for scores.
Each concert program in this series will be curated independently by guest artists with Artistic Associate Alicia Crossley, and Artistic Director Cameron Lam. All works submitted will be considered for both concerts, and the scores selected will be purchased from the composer or their publisher.
All pieces by Australian composers are eligible for this call, however, priority will be given to works that are not already well known in the existing repertoire.
We strongly encourage underrepresented voices in Australia’s art music community to apply, including but not limited to; women, trans, non-binary and gender diverse people, Indigenous people, and people of colour.
In late 2020, we requested works for soprano solo or soprano and piano. We received over 6 hours of music from 39 composers all over Australia. These works were considered for programming by Amelia Jones with Stefan Cassomenos (Melbourne), and Anna Fraser with Jack Symonds (Sydney) to present in Kammerklang’s 2021 season.
TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW!
Tickets are now available for Hidden Curiosities concerts in Sydney and Melbourne.

In 2021, Hidden Curiosities is a pair of programs drawn entirely from hidden gems of the Australian art song repertoire. From the same open call for scores, each soprano and piano duo has crafted their own unique program in collaboration with Kammerklang.
Anna Fraser & Jack Symonds perform Vestige in Sydney featuring music by Luke Styles, David Evans, Mark Oliveiro, Diana Blom, Ian Whitney, Robert McIntyre, Sean Quinn, and Anne Cawrse. (see event information)
Amelia Jones & Stefan Cassomenos perform Memento in Melbourne featuring music by Jessica Wells, Philip Eames, Robert McIntyre, Anne Cawrse, Keyna Wilkins, Diana Blom, Caerwen Martin, and Connor D’Netto. (see event information)
The programs, curated by Kammerklang with the performers, showcases not only each duos’ skill, personal aesthetic, musicality but the diversity of art song created in Australia.
