Ironwood is committed to exploring music of the baroque, classical and romantic periods on early string and keyboard instruments. Its members are some of Australia’s most respected early and contemporary chamber musicians. Ironwood complements their historically informed performances with new compositions and has produced recordings for ABC Classics and Vexations840.
Ironwood gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the Bundanon Trust, rehearsal residency for this project and the JUMP Mentorship Scheme, Australia Council for the Arts – Anthony Albrecht, (cello mentee) and Daniel Yeadon (cello mentor).

Ironwood officially launch their Developing Artists program, following successful seasons in 2010 & 2011 of performances for the Biennale of Sydney, Melbourne Recital Centre, St James King St, Sydney and a residency at Bundanon, NSW.  This seasonal orchestra gives young career-cusp musicians interested in Historically Informed Performance (HIP) an opportunity to perform with professionals in both urban and regional venues. The program provides Australia and the Pacific region with a pre-professional link orchestra on early instruments in the tradition of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, and other programs run by Tafelmusik, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Monteverdi Choir & Orchestra.
