Lori Freedma has been conspicuously described as “a musical revolutionary in the front ranks of the avant-garde”. With full throttle in both contemporary and improvised music streams she is known internationally for her provocative and creative performances. Over forty-five composers have written solo bass clarinet music for her and her work has been recorded on forty CDs, most recently Bridge (CQB/DAME), Plumb (Barnyard Records), 3 and À un moment donné (Ambiances Magnétiques), Huskless! (Artifact), See Saw and Thin Air (Wig). In 1998 she received the 1998 Freddie Stone Award for the “demonstration of outstanding leadership, integrity and excellence in the area of contemporary music and jazz.” Highlight collaborations in the recent past are with Joëlle Léandre, Mauricio Kagel, Rohan de Saram, Frances-Marie Uitti, Philippe Leroux, George Lewis, and Helmut Lachenmann. Her compositions have been performed by the Queen Mab Trio, Upstream Octet, Arraymusic Ensemble and l’Ensemble Supermusique.
