UW Faculty Recital Series Opens with Flute and Piano Music Sept. 15
A trio opens the University of Wyoming Department of Music fall Faculty Recital Series at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 15, in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall. The event is free and open to the public.
Performing will be UW Department of Music faculty members Nicole Riner, flute; Chi-Chen Wu, piano; and Kaori Uno-Jack, bassoon.
Riner, who will begin her eighth year as a flute lecturer, will team with Wu and Uno-Jack, both in their second years on the faculty, to perform a classic recital composed of standard repertoire for flute and piano, spanning the Baroque era to the early 20th century.
"I wanted to create a program that would serve as a model to my students, who are my most important critics in the audience," says Riner, who is well known for her affinity for modern music, and has commissioned and premiered numerous new works as a soloist and with her UW faculty group “Verismo Trio.”
The program will include sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach, German 19th century composer Carl Reinecke, and Czech composer Jindrich Feld, who died in 2007. Uno-Jack joins her on the “Bachianas Brasileiras No. 6” for flute and bassoon by Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos.
