UKARIA 24 | CONCERT TWO – WHO WE WANT TO BE

CURATED BY UMBERTO CLERICI


'The long period of forced inactivity during the pandemic, after frantic years with projects and concerts one after the other, gave me the opportunity to reflect on what I have done to date, and where I next wish to go. This period both cemented and accelerated my transition to conducting which had its genesis a few years ago.

Most of the musicians involved in this UKARIA 24 weekend occupy 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
