Audain launches an album
A composer who has worked with some of the country’s most prestigious orchestras has released a collection of her own works.
Yvette Audain’s music has been performed in New Zealand as well as in Australia, Japan and the United States.
She has composed and arranged pieces for the Auckland Philharmonia and plays fulltime with the Royal New Zealand Navy Band.
Now Audain is releasing Grooves Unspoken, a collection of original pieces on which she plays the clarinet, saxophone, recorder and Irish whistle.
The Aucklander was part of the APO’s Graduate Composers Workshop in 2010. Her work, Eulogy, was premiered in the 2011 Works With Words programme, in association with the Writers and Readers Festival.
The ‘‘eclectic’’ works on Grooves Unspoken range from classical to jazz, she says.
Audain is hosting an album release party on August 30 from 7.30pm at Cafe One 2 One on Ponsonby Rd. Entry is by koha. The hour-long show will be followed by a signing where copies of her album can be bought for $20.
