One of Australia’s most celebrated composers, Ross Edwards is the Sydney Conservatorium’s International Marquee Composer for 2012. On Wednesday May 9 at 6pm, there will be a special retrospective concert of his work in Verbruggen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium, Macquarie Street, Sydney. Music composed over a period of 32 years will be presented by some of Sydney’s leading performers and Ross will be onstage to introduce each work.
This unique event, of both musical and historical significance, promises to be a highlight of the year’s musical activities at the Con. Some of the works will be familiar, others less so. Ross’s new Piano Sonata, especially commissioned by the Con for this occasion, will be given its world premiere by Bernadette Harvey. Selections from his most recently completed composition, Five Senses, a song cycle to poems of Judith Wright, will be previewed by Jenny Duck-Chong, Bernadette Harvey and Claire Edwardes.Claire will also be performing some of Ross’s music for marimba, some of which was written especially for her.
