APO Young Achiever plays work by Yvette Audain

Thursday 10th May, 12.10 – 1pm: Auckland Philharmonia are staging a Young Achievers’ Concert at the Auckland City Library (level 2, Wananga). As it is New Zealand Music Month, outstanding 16-year-old clarinetist Ryan Cha will be performing a New Zealand work: Yvette Audain’s Hold Fast (1999) for unaccompanied clarinet. This will be the first time a performer other than the composer herself has presented this work. Would love to see you there!

Première of "en abyme"

In this concert, Mette Leroy will give the world première performance of en abyme by Samuel Holloway as well as a new work for solo flute by John Elmsly, while clarinetist Anna McGregor will play Berio’s challenging Sequenza IX. The concert also includes new works by graduate students Jeff Lin and Robbie Ellis.

The Karlheinz Company is one of New Zealand’s leading ensembles presenting stimulating and entertaining concerts of new compositions.

Premiere of "Icons and Artifice"

Stroma’s upcoming concert on 5 May, St Andrews on Tce at 6pm, will feature the world premiere of Michael Norris’s Icons and Artifice, a new work for bass clarinet duo, ensemble and live electronics. The guest soloists are the Duo Stump-Linshalm from Vienna, whose recently released CD with Kairos has been garnering much international praise.
