THIS Sunday 22 May at 3pm, Ashley Smith will be presenting a recital in the Callaway Auditorium at UWA.
Centred around Ashley’s research on the 20th century Italian composer, Franco Donatoni, the program consists of clarinet and bass clarinet works of extreme virtuosity. The recital shall include the Australian premiere of a solo work by Donatoni alongside the premiere of a new version of Magnus Lindberg’s Ablauf for clarinet with electronic sampling devised by Chris Tonkin. Other works include Berio’s Sequenza IX, Bartok’s Contrasts and Rossini’s Introduction, theme and variations. Lachlan Skipworth’s beautiful the night sky fall shall also be performed.
Joining Ashley will be Shaun Lee-Chen (violin), Gladys Chua (piano), Louise Devenish (percussion), Emily Green-Armytage (piano), Lachlan Skipworth (composer / conductor) and Chris Tonkin (composer / electronics).
The program is hard-edged, but promises to be extremely exciting. Entry is free!
