Event description
Dual Motion presents An Unlikely Pair - Bille Hart (Clarinet) and Leon Reynolds (Flute)

About this event

Dual Motion presents An Unlikely Pair - An exploration of the repertoire for flute and clarinet. Original compositions for this instrumentation are comparatively rare, and clarinetist Billie Hart and flautist Leon Reynolds take listeners on a journey of the history of their instruments and perform works written for this duo, as well as arrangements and adaptations of other works.

They begin with an arrangement of Mozart’s twelve horn duos, which work surprisingly well for this pair of woodwind instruments. Chopping and changing music to suit instruments was a common occurrence in Mozart's time - the composer himself even did it frequently! This is followed by a Kummer’s duets for flute and clarinet, showcasing his great knowledge of both instruments.

They then jump forward into the 20th century with Muczynski’s duo for flute and clarinet, where we hear the sound world of the two instruments really being explored. Finally, they finish with arrangements of some ragtime favourites.

Billy and Leon are part of the Auckland Philharmonia’s ‘Aspiring Musicians” programme.

This event is held at the Central City Library*, 44-46 Lorne St, Auckland City. Book tickets here or if you need help call 09 377 0209.
