Another post sharing a series of shiny new recordings to dust off older compositions that I loved writing and performing in recent years.
‘Samrukia’ for two baritone saxes was both one of the most challenging and rewarding chamber works I’ve written. Originally premiered by Fulcrum duo (myself and Samantha Mason) at a number of concerts way back in 2013-14, including the Australasian clarinet and saxophone conference. The title ‘Samrukia’ is the name of a large avian dinosaur, sadly too lumbering and heavy to ever be able to fly. Screeching multiphonics on the bari sax are perfectly suited to evoke the wild sounds of the cretaceous (I can only assume…)
