Simaku’s music performed by soloists of the Ensemble Intercontemporain
Professor Thomas Simaku has written a number of highly virtuosic pieces for various instruments, including his BASCA Award-winning piece Soliloquy V for recorder. The clarinet piece is his latest in the cycle and it was written for and dedicated to Jérôme Comte. This project culminated in a recording of Simaku’s Soliloquy VII for Solo Clarinet with Resonant Piano at Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall. To hear and excerpt of the new work, please follow the link to the video recording.
Most recently, another soloist of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Eric-Maria Couturier performed Simaku’s Soliloquy II for solo cello at the International Festival ‘Different Trains’ in Tirana on 4 October 2020. This concert was supported by the Ministry of Culture of Albania and the French Embassy in Tirana.
