Event Details

Ensemble Offspring’s core members Claire Edwardes (marimba) and Jason Noble (bass clarinet) team up with acclaimed harpist Emily Granger to unearth masterpieces from the depths of living musical imagination. Originally conceived as a live concert for the Seymour Centre’s Seymour Nights series, the complete performance of Blue Silence has since been recorded to present via livestream in order to stay connected with audiences during Sydney’s extended lockdown.

Granger's harp will feature in a solo penned by her partner and local legend Tristan Coelho, complemented by rousing chamber works from Nathan Daughtrey (USA), Caleb Burhans (USA), Gunnar Andreas Kristinsson (Iceland), and a timely trio arrangement of the reflective Blue Silence by Australian treasure Elena Kats-Chernin. To top it all off, you'll be captivated by a brand new duet for bass clarinet and marimba by Gerard Brophy inspired by Turkey's eastern coastal city of Van, titled Just outside Van…
