SIXSIX
SOLO
 

Premiering in 2018. Two nights of solo percussion performed by Claire Edwardes in unique venues around Australia. At the peak of her career, this larger than life solo recital series will highlight Claire’s unparalleled skills performing seminal percussion solo's and pair them with six new 'sister' works. Existing tour-de-force solo works by Franco Donatoni (Omar), Frederic Rzewski (To The Earth), Morton Feldman (King of Denmark), Vinko Globokar (Corporel), Harrison Birtwistle (The Axe Manual) and Iannis Xenakis (Psappha) will be paired with new solo's by an impressive line up of international and Australian composers Nicole Lizee, Yannis Kyriakides, Tristan Coelho, Peter Knight, Kate Neal and Claire Edwardes. Ensemble Offspring pianist extraordinaire Zubin Kanga will join Claire for the performances.

“Edwardes colours everything she plays with exuberance, intelligence and sensitivity and offers us here a great percussion primer.” Limelight Magazine
