Regarded as one of Canada’s finest musicians, renowned clarinettist François Houle returns to Australia for a national tour. He will be joined by long-time collaborator, Israeli-born pianist/composer Yitzhak Yedid, to perform Yitzhak’s stunning composition Myth of the Cave, which they recorded over ten years ago, as well as new works for trio. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear these world class musicians in their only Sydney performance.
François Houle’s performances and recordings transcend the stylistic borders associated with his instrument in all of the diverse musical spheres he embraces: classical, jazz, new music, improvised music, and world music. As an improviser, he has developed a unique language, virtuosic and rich with sonic embellishment and technical extensions. As a soloist and chamber musician, he has actively expanded the clarinet’s repertoire by commissioning some of today’s leading Canadian and international composers and premiering over one hundred new works.
The Israeli-Australian Yitzhak Yedid is one of the most outstanding and original talents of his generation. He merges classical influences and shapes with the improvisation freshness of jazz and music of the Middle East in a very exciting and surprising way. Numerous successful tours and prizes have created a reputation for him as one of the most creative living composers. He is a musical cosmopolitan in the modern sense of the word.
North Shore Temple Emanuel is a progressive Synagogue based at Chatswood on Sydney’s North Shore. The VJs series brings top class local and international jazz acts to the North Shore for audiences to enjoy world-class jazz in a beautiful and intimate space with a wonderful ambience and great sound.
Performers: François Houle - clarinet, Yitzhak Yedid- piano, Samuel Pankhurst - double bass
