Ensemble Offspring’s Lone Hemispheres features chamber musicians as soloists in works inspired by masterpieces of the European avant-garde. Performing alone yet moving within each other’s orbit, flautist Lamorna Nightingale, clarinetist Jason Noble and percussionist Claire Edwardes explore harmonious solitude in world premieres by Damien Ricketson, 2017 Noisy Women Commission recipient Elizabeth Younan and local composer, Tristan Coelho. These new Australian works comment on and are framed in concert, by classics of the genre by Franco Donatoni and Luciano Berio.
Michelle St Anne from Living Room Theatre will take over the creative design of the space. I
