Clarinetist Jackie Glazier and saxophonist Don-Paul Kahl, advocates of contemporary and modern music who perform together under the name Duo Entre-Nous, will play new works by composers from four continents in a concert beginning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday (Sept. 4) in the Arizona Senior Academy’s Great Room.
Glazier is a faculty member in the University of Arizona’s Fred Fox School of Music, and Kahl is a freelance saxophonist and a PhD candidate at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent, Belgium.
Duo Entre-Nous is a clarinet and saxophone ensemble dedicated to the progression of new music. Formed in 2014 by Kahl and Glazier, the duo has commissioned new repertoire for saxophone and clarinet from composers in North America, France, Australia, and Argentina garnering new pieces in a variety of different styles.
Kahl and Glazier are also devoted to music education, giving masterclasses and lectures at universities throughout the US. They not only teach the fundamentals of saxophone and clarinet in various traditional styles, but also engage students in the practice and technique of new music.
These works can be heard on their newly released album, “Light and Shadows, Waves and Time.” This summer the duo performed the world premieres of works by Chris Dench and Maria Eugenia-Luc in both Belgium and Croatia.
They have both been prize winners in numerous music competitions and have performed in symphony and chamber music groups around the world.
Tuesday’s program will provide the audience with an opportunity to hear works by new composers played by very accomplished international musicians.
