Brisbane International Jazz Festival presents: QLD Week Jazz Composers World Premieres
04 Jun 2014 | Wednesday 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Brisbane International Jazz Festival opens with award winning Queensland jazz composers Rafael Karlen, Andrew Butt, Louise Denson and Sean Foran presenting World Premieres commissioned exclusively by Jazz Queensland with sponsorship support for this initiative from the Queensland Government as part of Queensland Week.
Four bands plus UK guest Julian Arguelles, one of Europe’s most inventive saxophonists paired with the emotive and textural sounds of the piano trio TRICHOTOMY explore and create exciting new work.
Jazz Queensland president and festival Artistic Director Lynette Irwin says, ‘Composer commissions for Queensland jazz artists are rare and our organisation sees a valuable opportunity to connect with the Queensland week celebrations by commissioning new work that reflects our vibrant Jazz community and enormous talents of Jazz artists in our state.’
The Queensland Jazz Composers World Premiere is part of the Queensland Government’s Queensland Week celebrations 31 May–8 June 2014.
