Zoe Knighton, Gian Slater, Sonya Lifschitz - I Am Alone     Classical, Acoustic, Folk 20/09/2018
Zoë is at the fore of a new generation intent on forging an innovative path for the enjoyment of 'classical' music. She is a founding member of Flinders Quartet
From an album exploring the wonder and lurking fear of Motherhood. This emotional track presents the questions women silently ask themselves on coming to terms with the fact that they are, in fact, not alone - but now two! The strong cello, melodic piano and prisitine voice give us joy and sorrow, wonder and anticipation, and finally elation.

Zoe Knighton and Ian Munro - Jean Sibelius: Op. 78: no. 2 Romance     Classical, Instrumental 20/09/2018
Zoë is at the fore of a new generation of performer forging an innovative path for the enjoyment of 'classical' music. She is a founding member of Flinders Quartet.
From four pieces for violin (or cello) and piano, Sibelius wrote all during WW1 with an air of optimism. He felt Romance was too traditional, but despite this, it is one of his most poular short pieces. This piece offers a "refreshing layer within the release"
- Stephanie Eslake, Limelight.
