Hume Chamber Music Festival

Blue Silence

September 16, 2022 @ 7:00pm 8:30pm

Ensemble Offspring’s very own musical mavericks Claire Edwardes (marimba) and Jason Noble (bass clarinet) join forces with acclaimed American harpist Emily Granger (“watching Granger play the harp was enthralling” City News, Canberra) to unearth masterpieces from the depths of living musical imagination for their three monolithic instruments.

Granger’s harp features in a stunning solo penned by local legend Sally Whitwell and Edwardes’ marimba sings in a new work by Anne Cawrse. Virtuosic and rousing duos from Nathan Daughtrey (USA), Caleb Burhans (USA) and Ross Edwards (AUS) are flanked by two arrangements of the charming music of Australian treasure Elena Kats-Chernin, alongside Gerard Brophy’s new duo Just outside Van… for bass clarinet and marimba – a piece that takes you on a journey to Turkey’s ancient east coast. An eclectic and engaging program that showcases three unique instrumentalists at their peak.

Don’t miss this intimate musical experience with three of Australia’s most versatile and captivating chamber musicians.

Ensemble Offspring is committed to ensuring our events are accessible to everyone. Please email admin@ensembleoffspring.com at the time of booking to inform us of any special access needs.
