Flutist Mark Takeshi McGregor has been praised for his “mind blowing” performances of “huge physical energy” (Times Colonist). Clarinetist Liam Hockley is emerging as a musical talent to watch – an artist for whom “alternative or avant-garde approaches to his instrument are only part of the everyday tool kit” (Georgia Straight). For this concert, the two will collaborate to perform a selection of recent works for flute, clarinet and electronics by Mark Andre (France), Luigi Nono (Italy), Salvatore Sciarrino (Italy) and Jane Stanley (Australia), plus the world premieres of works by Yota Kobayashi (Canada) and Kimia K. Yazdi (Iran).
