Five members of the DePauw School of Music faculty -- Anne Reynolds, Randy Salman, Leonid Sirotkin, Kara Stolle, and Robert Danforth -- will present a concert dedicated to wind repertoire in the Green Center's Thompson Recital Hall Monday at 7:30 p.m.
The group has been performing together as the Faculty Woodwind Ensemble since 2006. Featured in the concert will be music by composers of various periods and styles, including Georg Philipp Telemann's sparkling "Concerto a tres in F Major" for flute, French horn, and bassoon.
"We have really enjoyed putting this program together because it's a potpourri of music that we've never played before that's also challenging and fun," Reynolds said. "There are different styles and different instrumentations, including use of the English horn and piccolo that are not standard woodwind quintet instruments."
The concert will open with Czech composer Joseph Bohuslav Foerster's 1909 Woodwind Quintet, followed by the late-romantic "Arabesken" by Paul Juon, the Telemann concerto and then "Fragments" for flute, clarinet, and bassoon by American composer Robert Muczynski. The program concludes with Paquito D'Rivera's spectacular "Aires Tropicales for Woodwind Quintet."
