• Show Bio for Lori Freedman
"Lori Freedman. Born Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 1958. Residence: Montréal, Québec. Composer, Performer (clarinet, bass clarinet)
Qualified as "a musical revolutionary in the front ranks of the avant-garde" by Alex Varty of the Georgia Straight (Vancouver), Lori Freedman (clarinets) is internationally recognized as one of the most creative and provocative performers. She is a member of a select group known as "renaissance musicians" as her artistic activities cover many fields: performer of written music (well over one hundred works have been written for or premiered by her), composer, improviser, teacher, and on occasion, writer. While managing a full performance schedule of more than 75 public appearances a year, Freedman has been receiving commissions to write music for ensembles such as Orkestra Futura, Arraymusic Ensemble, Ensemble Transmission, Continuum Contemporary Music Ensemble, Ensemble SuperMusique, Ensemble Paramirabo, Upstream Orchestra, Queen Mab Trio, Crowbar Trio, Lott Dance, Oberlander Films, Foresite Theatre, Cooke Productions and Autumn Leaf Productions. Her current discography comprises over 59 recordings, the most recent of which include Greffes (Empreintes digitales), On No (Mode Records), Bridge (Collection QB), Plumb (Barnyard Records), 3 and À un moment donné (Ambiances Magnétiques), Huskless! (Artifact), See Saw and Thin Air (Wig). Highlight collaborations include work with Rohan de Saram, Barre Phillips, Helmut Lachenmann, Frances-Marie Uitti, Monique Jean, Joëlle Léandre, Axel Dörner, George Lewis, the Jack Quartet and Richard Barrett."-ActuelleCD (http://www.actuellecd.com/en/bio/freedman_lo/)

sample the album:
"In 2016 I made an 11-city North American solo tour called The Virtuosity of Excess, the programme for which was a collection of five scores, two of which were written for the tour: this was music whose scores contained (and still do) the most detailed notation and performance instruction I have ever played. The sixth part of that "monster" was my own composition influenced by and in reaction to such an extreme performance aesthetic. This programme is now available on the cd recording Excess (Collection QB).
My main post-tour desire was then to expand on my own creative work, much of which had been already evolving in direct relation to the excess programme, either with it or against it. I spent the next chunk of time developing both on paper and in playing, my own ideas that were born primarily from that all-consuming period of interpretive work.
Solor is a recording of some of my past and current creative work. Heard here are my performances of 5 of my solo compositions, 3 of which were written for the album, plus two improvisations."-Lori Freedman
