Wednesday 27 May from 8:30pm to 9:30pm

An intimate trio setting brings together an array of original chamber works by Australian composers, as breath-taking as a lyrebird’s tail.

On flute, clarinet and percussion (namely vibraphone and waterphone), with sounds both familiar and intriguing – butcherbirds, blackbirds, leafcutter ants and frogs – take a journey into the Australian bush through this intimate instrumental chamber setting. 

Written especially for the members of Ensemble Offspring by the who’s who of Australian composers, and celebrating the fact that the majority are female, the program features pieces by the next generation of Australian creators: Kate Moore, Felicity Wilcox, alongside established composers such as Gerard Brophy and Jon Rose. 

Program:

Fiona Loader – Lorikeet Corroboree (2015) for flute, clarinet, vibraphone

Claire Edwardes – Screechers and Sorrows (2019) for waterphone solo

Kate Moore – Blackbird Song (2018) for alto flute, bass clarinet, vibraphone

Felicity Wilcox – People of this Place  (2016) for bass clarinet

Hollis Taylor / Jon Rose – Bitter Springs Creek 2014 (2019) for flute, bass clarinet, vibraphone and field recording
