Spring Recital Series Comes to a Close at UW April 17
“River of Light” closes the University of Wyoming Department of Music Faculty Recital Series spring season Thursday, April 17, at 7:30 p.m. The free public program is in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.
The recital will feature UW Department of Music professors John Fadial, violin, and Theresa Bogard, piano.
“River of Light” highlights intimate music for violin/piano from the 20th and 21st centuries, written in 2007 by American composer Richard Danielpour in memory of violinist Isaac Stern. The San Diego Tribune praised the piece for its “luminous intensity.”
Aaron Jay Kernis, director of the famed Minnesota Orchestra’s Composers’ Institute, will be featured on the program. Classic repertoire from beloved composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart -- whose father, Leopold, was a famous violinist of his time -- also will be featured.
“River of Light” closes an active recital season for the UW Department of Music. The series featured a wide variety of faculty performances in the classical and jazz, and also guest performances by Eminent Artists-in-Residence Dawn Upshaw and American Brass Quintet, among others.
