Claire Edwardes - percussion Hamish McKeich - conductor STROMA
A concert of scintillating percussion from Australia's leading percussion virtuoso. Australian percussion virtuoso Claire Edwardes joins Stroma, conducted by Hamish McKeich, in a concert of contrasting styles.
This concert features a 'micro-concerto' by American post-minimalist Steven Mackey. Clearly influenced by jazz sonorities and with reminiscences of favourite works by John Adams (that have appeared in previous Stroma concerts), the micro-concerto promises to be an excellent introduction to Claire's skills.
Juxtaposed against this are works by New Zealand ex-patriates Alison Isadora and Jeroen Speak. Jeroen will be moving from London to Wellington in mid-2013, where he will spend a year sharing the residency with Dorothy Ker at the Lilburn Residence in Thorndon.
Rounding out the programme is an ear-shimmering version of Ligeti's harpsichord classic Continuum, arranged for two marimbas.
