Redshift Music Society is pleased to announce the release of its fifth CD, Vox Terra — the brainchild of Canadian clarinetist Cris Inguanti. Inguanti is assistant principal clarinet and bass clarinet with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and one of Canada’s most respected musicians. Inguanti spent most of 2007/08 exploring the most recent solo and chamber repertoire for his instrument — the result of this exploration is VOX TERRA: Music for the Clarinet with a Global Focus. On October 17th Inguanti, along with fellow musicians Corey Hamm (piano), Todd Cope (clarinet) and Becky Wenham (cello), will share his findings with us. They’ll present a cosmopolitan feast of music including works by Joan Tower, Peter Sculthorpe, and CMC Associate composers Michael Tenzer and Jeffrey Ryan.
Everyone receives a FREE copy of the VOX TERRA CD with the price of admission.
Join us in the hushed intimacy of the Jazz Cellar, enjoy great food and drink, listen to some of the coolest music written in the last thirty years, performed by some of Vancouver’s greatest artists (and take the music home with you afterward!).
Cris Inguanti has been assistant principal and bass clarinetist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra since 1998, and has been a member of the Pacific Northwest Ballet and Houston Ballet Orchestras, the New York City Opera National Company Orchestra, and the New Philharmonia of Portugal. He has appeared as a soloist with orchestras in Europe and North America, and as a member of the Manhattan Wind Quintet, Mr. Inguanti has won numerous prizes in chamber music competitions and has commissioned a number of new works for this genre.
