Connor D’Netto has been named by Chamber Music Australia the winner of the inaugural Australian New Works Award for his String Quartet No. 2 in E minor.

Connor’s winning composition was selected from a very strong field of submissions, with the jury for the Australian New Works Award consisting of Kim Williams AM, Paul Grabowsky AO and Mary Finsterer, who congratulate all who entered.
Parts and scores have now been sent to all of the ensembles coming to Melbourne in July to complete their preparation for the 7th Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition. Audiences will hear the premiere of Connor’s String Quartet No. 2 in E minor as the set work in the Finals of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.
