After our shared experience of lockdown in 2020, the fruits of Taikoz’s creativity emerge stronger than ever in 2021.
Side by Side features five world premieres of new works by emerging composers from within the ensemble and Karlin Love - the winner of Taikoz’s 2020 Composer Competition.
In Side by Side the full expressivity of Taikoz is on show: the breathless chase of Kerryn Joyce’s Run!, Sophia Ang’s spectral taiko-set solo Shadow Games, Ryuji Hamada’s joyous Yasaka, Claudia Wherry’s gamelan inspired Cocoon, Ian Cleworth's awe-inspiring Awakening for odaiko trio, and Karlin Love’s dramatic Fierce: The Vengeance Of Joy.
Come and celebrate, experience and contribute to real, live music-making with Taikoz in 2021.
