This project engages with 13 of the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University’s saxophone students, an institution from Brisbane, Australia. This group composes, commissions others, and performs for the saxophone orchestra medium. After their last tour to Europe, performing at The Guildhall, London; the World Saxophone Congress, St Andrews; and the ISME World Conference, Thessaloniki, Greece; they recorded their CD Australian Made 2012 available on CD baby and iTunes http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/queenslandconservatorium Conducted by Diana Tolmie, a guest soloist with the Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra for the Strasbourg World Saxophone Congress and D’Addario International Artist, she has a long history of experience with orchestral, chamber music, jazz and pedagogy genres. Thomas Green’s work “Passacaglia” is influenced by popular mediums such as dubstep and related styles yet enjoys the combination of older traditional mediums as will be heard in his composition with the Mulhouse Symphony Orchestra “Three Years Beginning Again”; Louise Denson’s long career as a jazz pianist, lecturer and band director allows a relaxed colour of jazz to influence her third-stream cross-over style; Andrew Ball’s compositions have been premiered at several world events and tend towards challenging rhythmic investigation of multi-meter and polyphonic principles. His work “Gravitational Lens” represents this; and Robert Burrell – an Australian expatriot residing in Malaysia as an academic lecturer with UPSI delves into the political and emotional concerns of the “boat people” with his composition “Colibri”. Matilda Grieve explores body movement within sound in “Kin.u.s.thet.ic” and is our up-and-coming composer and performer for the QCSO.
