Reimagining: a concert of new works for accordion & clarinet

The culmination of a multi-year project sees Joseph Petric (accordion) and Martin Carpentier (clarinet) perform new duo works developed by an international roster of composers. New relationships, formed in the creation of each piece, serve to refract and re-imagine their instruments, their role, function, contexts and interpretive possibilities. The programme will hint at ambiguity, vulnerability, and fresh artistic perspectives offered by the confounding of expectation.

Both Petric and Carpentier have pursued careers as champions of process, challenging orthodoxies while embracing the nexus of memory, aesthetics, and understanding achieved through their performance practice.

Here reimagining is a renewal of process, embedded within each new creation.

Concert Programme

Transonique, Gabriel Mălăncioiu - ROM
