Virtuosic solo works

HAMMERINGS RECORDS is delighted to present two of Europe’s foremost composers in our April, 2018 concert – Viktorija Cop (Croatia) and Dorian Cene (Albania). Both have been performed at numerous international music festivals and in concerts throughout Europe, Asia and the USA.


Viktorija Cop has written Dual for alto saxophone especially for this concert and for James Nightingale to premiere in Sydney.

We have already presented the violin solo …A… by Dorian Cene last November at The Creative Space Gallery in North Curl Curl. It gathered so many wonderful comments we decided to present it in a different venue – the wonderful acoustic at WATTERS.

James Nightingale

Also on the program will be the first Australian performance of a new alto saxophone solo by Melbourne resident composer Andrian Pertout. Internationally Andrian is one of our most performed and commissioned composers.

Alan Holley is represented by two works composed 26 years apart – Hammerings for flute and the premiere performance of Hammerings IV for cello.

A stellar list of performers ensures a concert to remember.
