For decades ‘the sorceress of percussion’, Claire Edwardes, has been working with instrumentalists and composers from her country of birth: Australia. In this broadcast,  with the title ‘Kammerbox’, we bring to you a collection of chamber music, which was specially written for Claire Edwardes.


They give an overview of the best percussion music of Australian composers, such as Ross Edwards, Peter Sculthorpe, and Gerard Brophy. Claire herself plays on the marimba, vibraphone or on percussion.
