Program:

Schubert - Arpeggione Sonata

Natalie Williams - New Work

Gnattali - Sonata for Cello and Guitar

plus fiery Spanish and South American works by Piazzolla, De Falla and others

 

The cello-guitar duo of Umberto Clerici and Karin Schaupp brings together two of Australia’s finest and most expressive instrumentalists in a fiery program of music from around the world.

 

German-born Australian guitarist Schaupp and newly-arrived-in-Australia Italian cellist Clerici were asked to collaborate for the 70th anniversary Musica Viva Festival in Sydney in 2015. They found an immediate musical rapport within the engaging tonal combination of the cello and the guitar.

 

The first half of the concert program features Schubert’s beautiful Arpeggione Sonata (the arpeggione was a romantic hybrid instrument akin to both the cello and the guitar, so it is most fitting to play this unique work in its transcription for cello and guitar duo), alongside the premiere of a wonderful new work written especially for the duo by Australian composer Natalie Williams. The second half of the program will take the audience on a sumptuous journey through Spain and South America, featuring works by De Falla, Piazzolla and the Brazilian great Radames Gnattali.

 

Schaupp is a multi-award winning guitarist with a distinguished history of solo performances, recordings and collaborative projects, while Clerici is in high demand as a soloist and chamber musician worldwide, as well as holding the position of principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Clerici and Schaupp form a formidable duo in what is certain to be an unforgettable and moving musical journey.
