Event Details

Syzygy presents a geographical survey of just how far Pierrot’s reach has extended. From the explicit references of England’s Helen Grime, to the confronting edginess of Holland’s Jacob ter Veldhuis, and finishing with our own Roger Smalley, there is barely a composer alive who doesn’t feel the influence of Schoenberg’s masterpiece in some way.

Syzygy Ensemble: Laila Engle: flute/piccolo, Julia Stoppa: clarinets, Jenny Khafaghi: violin, Lauren Brigden: viola*, Blair Harris: cello, Leigh Harrold: piano

*guest artist

Featured non-Australian music: Jacob ter Veldhuis – Lipstick, Helen Grime – Seven Pierrot Miniatures (Australian premiere), Peteris Vasks: Das Buch
