QSO: Morrison, Bliss & Dewey premiere
A tuneful, diverse program with brilliant soloists James Morrison and Julian Bliss
The Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Queensland Music Festival have jointly commissioned Australian composer Matthew Dewey to write an exhilarating work for James Morrison (trumpet) and Julian Bliss (clarinet). American composer Lalo Schifrin was originally slated to compose a triple concerto for trumpet, piano and clarinet. While it is unfortunate that Mr Schifrin is no longer in a position to complete this commission, QSO is excited to be able to feature the work of Australia’s own Matthew Dewey. Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story Symphonic Dances and Ives’s rich Symphony No. 2 infused with borrowed fragments from hymns, folk music, other composers’ repertoire and the pop songs of his day, are an excellent fit in this adventurous, accessible concert. A concert that premieres Dewey’s classical yet jazz-fired language; tailor-made for two extraordinary musicians.
