calendar icon12 Jan 2018
LINCOLN, Neb.— University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music Professors John Bailey, flute, and Christopher Marks, piano and organ, perform a recital of flute and keyboard music on Thursday, January 25 in Kimball Recital Hall, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Featured on the program will be American composer Daniel Pinkham’s Miracles for flute and organ, based on five miracles of Jesus from the New Testament. The 17-minute work, first performed in 1978 by Boston Symphony principal flutist Doriot Anthony Dwyer and organist Yuko Hayashi, is colorful, inventive, and evocative. Other works on the program include an Italian baroque sonata by Leonardo Vinci (no relation to the famous artist and inventor!); a Suite by Paris Conservatory flutist, conductor, and composer, Philippe Gaubert; a work for solo flute by Leipzig composer Sigfrid Karg-Elert; and the Ballade by Swiss composer, Frank Martin, which he wrote for the 1939 Geneva international flute competition.
The performance is free and open to the public. The performance will also be live webcast. Visit music.unl.edu the night of the event for the link.
