Our second faculty concert took place July 3rd, a programme which featured percussion, flute, as well as an oboe, horn, and piano trio.
Jolivet`s Suite en Concert pour Flute et Percussion married the diverse and contrasting abilities of both instruments in an eclectic four movement composition.
The Temazcal for Maracas and Tape, performed by Aiyun Huang, was executed with great vivacity and ended in what was perceived to be a rather humorous tone as the tape transitioned to vacation-esque music.
Chaconne, composed by Erik Ross, was specially commissioned for faculty members Gabe Radford and Sarah Jeffrey. Overall, the trio had excellent group dynamic, obviously well matched, and played incredibly sweetly.
