UKARIA 24 | CONCERT ONE: OURSELVES, WHO WE ARE, WHO WE WANT TO BE

CURATED BY UMBERTO CLERICI

‘Each of us, the musicians of the 2021 UKARIA 24, have spent between twenty and forty years in music, thousands of hours with our instruments and an untold number of kilometres "on the road". One of the definitions of a good musician is someone who, through their sensitivity and personality, traditions and studies, serves the music, becoming a sort of human filter. But how would it be if, just for this concert, it is the music that serves and describes the musicians? Each performer will play a piece that represents who they are, and from where they have come.

Every musician involved in this UKARIA 24 weekend has occupied considerable space in my artistic journey since I first arrived in Australia almost eight years ago. This concert seeks to describe my contributions and years as Principal Cello of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, my cherished relationship with UKARIA which began at Ngeringa 24 in 2016 (curated by Genevieve Lacey), more recent friendships, and a newly born piece, a world premiere, by a composer whom I highly admire.’

– Umberto Clerici
