Event Details

Three and Under is a program of intriguing miniatures for flute, clarinet and percussion showcasing the members of Ensemble Offspring as theatrical soloists and chamber music gurus. They perform works written specifically for them by composers from home (Jane Stanley and Matthew Shlomowitz) and abroad (Oscar Bettison, Jukka Tiensuu, Tom Johnson and David Lang). This engaging show features an array of surprising musical gems written within our lifetime, including a re-staging of Matthew Shlomowitz’s popular Letter Piece which combines physical actions with text and sounds in what has been described as arty farty charades and a Counting Duet by Tom Johnson shows us that music is actually about numbers not letters! In Brisbane the group teams up with newcomers ‘Kupka’s Piano‘.

Performers: Lamorna Nightingale (flute), Jason Noble (clarinet), Claire Edwardes (percussion)

Featured non-Australian music: David Lang, Jukka Tiensuu, Tom Johnson, Oscar Bettison, John Cage
