A collaboration between established and emerging performers, composers and visual artists, Kammerklang 2009 is the first iteration of an annual concert project. Seven composers, 20 performers and more than ten visual artists have been brought together to produce one of the most exciting student-based initiatives in contemporary Australian art. Come and experience the atrium of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music transformed into an art gallery. The exhibition will include works, created in response to the concert program, by professional artists and students from Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney) and the College of Fine Arts (University of NSW).
Acclaimed, Sydney-based percussionist Claire Edwardes will premiere percussion solos, accompanied by the tertiary student and graduate performers comprising the Kammerklang chamber orchestra. Shaun Barlow (flutes) and Daniel Luscombe (percussion) feature as soloists performing Stuart Greenbaum's Chamber Concerto for flute, percussion and large ensemble. The piece was premiered by Claire Edwardes, Emma Sholl and the Sydney Omega Ensemble in 2008, commissioned by Father Arthur Bridge and Ars Musica Australis.
Duration: 50 mins – 20-min interval – 50 mins.
