Reimer, Fountain to combine for ‘Songs From The Parlor’

LINCOLN, Neb.— Music making in the home has long been a staple of the Western classical tradition. From the early Italian operas to Schubert’s evenings of music, where friends gathered, music was made – in celebration, in commemoration, in mourning. This was no different in nineteenth century America. Around the middle of the century, art music appeared as a viable compositional endeavor, particularly in the Northeast, and a new era in composition took form.

Clinton’s upcoming “A.Major.Recital” opens Spring performance season

LINCOLN, Neb.— University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music Professor of Piano Mark Clinton’s Thursday, January 12, 2017 performance features the monumental opus posthumous A Major Sonata of Schubert (written two months before the composer’s death), and the epic Sixth Sonata of Prokofiev (the first of the composer’s so-called “War Sonatas” written during World War II).
