“Three Bites make an entire meal! In the first of a new annual recording series to showcase innovative chamber music, Ensemble Offspring brings the listener unequivocally into the 21st century with pieces written especially for the group... the dynamic energy of Artistic Director Claire Edwardes ensures that no avenue is left unexplored in the furtherance of the art.”

- Gwen Bennet, Loudmouth Magazine:

Offspring Bites, Ensemble Offspring's brand-new annual recording series, showcases the most exceptional chamber music composed for the ensemble. Offspring Bites 1 (2017) showcases well-known Australian composer Mary Finsterer, alongside the highly talented Tristan Coelho, and Berlin-based Mexican composer and sound artist, Juan Felipe Waller. 
- Claire Edwardes (Artistic Director)
