MUSIC AND CULTURAL INCLUSION: Am I an Australian Composer?
The UWA Conservatorium of Music Callaway Seminar Series presents The Gallop House Prelude Composer-in-Residence inaugural address.
Speaker: 2021 Gallop House Composer in Residence Dr Yitzhak Yedid
Yitzhak Yedid talks about the challenges of immigrants’ composers in the Australian classical domain and about intercultural openness and acceptance in the music art industry.
Yitzhak Yedid (PhD) is an award-winning composer, pianist and pedagogue, and the 2021 Gallop House Prelude Composer-in-Residence and Sidney Myer Creative Fellow. His expertise as a composer is in the integration of non-European musical elements, including improvisation, with Western practice. His compositions explore new forms of integrating classical Arabic music, Arabic-influenced Jewish music and contemporary Western art music.
Prelude is a national network of residencies for Australian composers, housed in historic buildings. It is a collaboration between the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Composers’ Trust, the National Trust of Western Australia and the National Trust of South Australia. Prelude is assisted by the Australian government through the Australia Council for the Arts and by APRA-AMCOS.
