Old met new in an exciting week-long festival of music composed for the cello, ranging from baroque works written in the early 18th century through to world premier compositions by UWA resident composer, Chris Tonkin, and UWA student composers. This festival took the listener on a musical odyssey through time, timbre, texture, tone and techniques. The cello’s wide range of performance possibilities were explored and exploited, with little-known early works performed in new ways, and newly composed music heard for the first time, developing and diverging from traditions and conventions of the past.
