Jonathan Sage Concert
At the age of 23, Sage already has an impressive track record as a contemporary-music-specialising clarinetist, having performed widely as a soloist and ensemble-member and premiered several solo clarinet pieces specially composed for him. His very considerable technical skill, mastery of many extended techniques and openness to sonic experimentation make him an ideal interpreter of new music. Sage already has a strong relationship with the contemporary music of Ireland, having premiered specially-composed pieces by Irish composers Amanda Feery and Garrett Sholdice and performed in a Chimera Ensemble performance of Donnacha Dennehy’s Junk Box Fraud, the first such performance of the work by an ensemble other than Dennehy’s own Crash Ensemble.
