Cello Highlight
Umberto Clerici

This weekend Umberto Clerici, Principal Cellist of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, will perform on two very special instruments. He has just returned from Cremona with a new born cello from renowned luthier Loeiz Honorè. His instruments have won many prizes including a special prize at the Triennale Competition awarded by Rostropovich. In contrast Umberto will also play a cello crafted by G.B Guadagnini c.1743, known as the ‘Ngeringa’. It is one of his finest and was included in an international exhibition in Parma, Italy, in 2011 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of his birth! This cello is currently on loan to Sharon Draper, cellist of the Australian String Quartet. She has kindly made it available to Umberto for Ngeringa 24.  

Don’t miss the panel discussion about listening at 3.30pm on Saturday, led by Anna Goldsworthy. Umberto will talk and play these two great instruments, made almost 300 years apart, and Chloe Hooper (writer) and Genevieve Lacey (recorder/curator) will also provide their unique insights. Join the conversation, it’s free and there’s no need to book or register.

Also of special interest is Noon at 2 pm on Saturday. This concert features five exquisite artists, each playing solo pieces, with celebrated author Chloe Hooper reading poetry about noon. In preparation for this performance Chloe read thousands of poems and her selection weaves a magical thread through the program. Ngeringa is the perfect setting for this intimate concert as you can sit up close and really listen to each solo voice.
