|UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Seminar Series | Nicola Boud : An Introduction to Historical Clarinets
A free weekly seminar series, with presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.
This week we welcome UWA Graduate and celebrated period clarinettist Nicola Boud to present 'An Introduction to Historical Clarinets'
Despite being a relative latecomer to the woodwind family, the clarinet has itís own fascinating story to tell. Its mechanical evolution greatly varied throughout Europe since the 18th century, with each step of its development, together with distinctive variation in stylistic language differing from one country to the next. These historical elements shed light on performance considerations that we face today
Born in Perth, Nicola obtained her Bachelor of Music with first class honours from the University of Western Australia in 1999, and was awarded the Edith Cowan Prize for performance and musicology. During her studies Nicola began to play with the Australian Chamber Orchestra on modern and historical clarinet. Her curiosity in early music took her to the Netherlands, where she completed her Masters in historical performance at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague with Eric Hoeprich in 2004.
Now based in Europe, Nicola tours and records extensively, and is in demand as principal clarinet with various orchestras and ensembles. Nicola is also an active chamber musician, regularly performing with the pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, and the Cambini and Edding Quartets, and has performed at many prestigious festivals. Nicola returns to UWA for this week-long residency as an Institute of Advanced Studies Misha Strassberg Fellow.
