Biography

A founding member of both eminent Australian chamber groups Arcadia Winds and Ensemble Françaix, Matthew Kneale is making his name as a leading bassoonist of his generation and a bold artistic thinker. He is a graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, and in addition to critically acclaimed solo and ensemble performances, has served as Casual Bassoonist of the Melbourne, Adelaide, Queensland and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras. His repertoire ranges from traditional masterpieces to the latest new compositions and commissions for bassoon by György Ligeti, Brett Dean, Paul Dean, Peter de Jager and Lachlan Skipworth, among others. In 2018, Matthew will be giving the world premiere of Holly Harrison's new work for Bassoon and String Quartet as part of the Canberra Symphony Orchestra's Australian Series.
