Acclaimed soloists in their own right, Mark Knoop and Carl Rosman (external link) also regularly perform at the heart of such new music groups as the Libra Ensemble (external link), ELISION (external link), Plus-Minus (external link) and musikFabrik (external link). For the last 16 years they have performed widely in Australia and Europe as a duo, rising to the most utopian demands of today’s composers for the combination of clarinet and piano. For the Cutting Edge (external link) they perform new works by Andrew Digby and Adam de la Cour (external link) as well as the UK première of Michael Finnissy (external link)’s Clarinet Sonata and Richard Barrett (external link)’s controversial Flechtwerk, composed for them in 2007.
