Redfern's 107 Projects hosts the launch of Symbioses, a travelling concert series curated by New York-based Australian soprano Jane Sheldon. At each Symbiosis, Jane and two guest instrumentalists present music for duo and trio, with a focus on works of the present and of the 20th-century avant-garde. These hour-long programs are designed to cast a light on the symbiotic nature of chamber music performance: breathing together, thinking together, and witnessed at close range by the listeners.
Symbiosis I, the series opener, features guest artists Megan Clune (clarinet) and James Wannan (viola). It includes the world premiere of a pair of new works by Australian composer Jack Symonds, as well as the Australian premiere of Elliott Carter's beautiful late work for soprano and clarinet, Poems of Louis Zukofsky, composed in 2008, 4 years before before the composer's death at 103.
Performers: Jane Sheldon, soprano; Megan Clune, clarinet; James Wannan, viola
Featured non-Australian music: Elliott Carter: Poems of Louis Zukofsky (Australian premiere); Rebecca Clarke: Prelude, Allegro, and Pastorale; Giya Kancheli: Caris Mere; Harrison Birtwistle: Deowa
