ANAM Recital: Dario Scalabrini (clarinet)

As a musician’s instrumental proficiency develops, so too does their artistic taste and temperament. Each ANAM musician’s recital is a snapshot in time - simultaneously summarising their year of training and revealing glimpses of their future selves. What music excites them? What do they want to communicate? How does their art help them understand the world better? Experience the unique and intimate points of view of each musician individually in this recital series. Hear what the next generation of virtuosi have to say, and how.

And, in 2024 the ANAM Set is back in a special iteration. Musicians in their 3rd year of training present a specially commissioned work as part of their recital program.


"In choosing the repertoire for this recital I wanted to compile a mixed bag of works, each leaving the listener with food for thought.

Starting with Brett Dean’s Confessio for solo bass clarinet, listeners will delve into the mind of King Claudius from Shakespeare’s Hamlet as he comes to terms with his murderous deed. From eerie passages, anger and dread the bass clarinet is in full flight during this piece.

This recital features the world premiere of Christine Pan’s ANAM Set commission Echo Chamber for solo clarinet. Focusing on the effects of technology in modern society, Echo Chamber utilises a unique palette of colours to explore the phenomenon of ‘filter bubbles’.

Brahms’ Eb Major sonata for clarinet and piano is a staple of the repertoire. It is a beautiful display of lyricism, expression and emotion in music. Written as one of his final works, this sonata has an aura of peace, love and nostalgia." - Dario Scalabrini
