Ensemble Offspring showcases the sheer virtuosity of its musicians in an evening of works inspired by the uncompromising power and aural intensity of a true revolutionary. The music of architect, mathematician and composer Iannis Xenakis, has been described as ‘joyously elemental music which turns collections of pitches and rhythms into a force of nature’ (Tom Service). It’s also fiendishly difficult. Claire Edwardes (percussion), Veronique Serret (violin) and Zubin Kanga (piano) each present seminal works by Xenakis – Rebonds A/B, Mikka, Mikka S and Evryali – alongside newly commissioned solos by Canadian composer, Nicole Lizée, Berlin-based Australian, Cathy Milliken, and Sydney composer, Michael Smetanin. Program: Iannis Xenakis – Rebonds (1989) for percussion 13’ Iannis Xenakis – Mikka/Mikka S (1971/76) for violin 4’ Iannis Xenakis – Evryali (1973) for piano 9’5 Nicole Lizee – Bored End-of-Summer Kids (2018) for percussion (World Premiere) 10’ Cathy Milliken – New work (2018) for violin solo (World Premiere) 8’ Michael Smetanin – Four Angels (2018) for piano solo (World Premiere) 8’ Performers: Véronique Serret (violin) Claire Edwardes (percussion) Zubin Kanga (piano)
