Polarity

Polarity

Riverina Conservatorium of Music (map)

Polarity members Eliza Shephard and Alex Waite first crossed paths in 2016 when they both commenced study at the Australian National Academy of Music. A performance on 3MBS FM’s series The Talent brought them musically together. Following this performance, they realised that they rather enjoyed working together, and that they both had a bucket list of repertoire that they wanted to work through, from similar genres, styles and composers. They decided that in 2018 they would tackle one of the largest and most challenging duos for flute and piano “for fun”, Pierre Boulez’s Sonatine, which proved to be an inspiring and pivotal moment in their duo-playing time together. They officially became Polarity in late 2018, selecting the name because it not only displays their polar opposite personalities, but also their enormous selection of repertoire that they love performing. Together, Polarity creates dynamic and intriguing performances of the piano and flute repertoire, and as individual musicians, they have been described as 'fiery' and 'exciting', as well as are known for their engaging and risk-taking approaches to music.

French Fancy

French Fancy

Riverina Conservatorium of Music (map)

French composers changed the musical landscape, with a fresh perspective, particularly for woodwind instruments. The music for the clarinet and saxophone composed in the twentieth century by French composers such as Bozza, Poulenc and Dubois radiated precise colour and tone, with hallmarks of wit and eclecticism as well as light and transparent simplicity.

Come on an exciting and bold journey through some of the finest twentieth century French clarinet and saxophone repertoire interspersed with other unique compositions.

Jenny Binovec - clarinet/saxophone and Hamish Tait - piano

Tickets $27 adults, $17 concession/student, $10 RCM student.
