University of Wyoming Music Department instructors will perform with UW graduate students in a mixed chamber music concert Sunday, April 12, at 3 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for Performing Arts concert hall. The concert is free and open to the public.

Those performing in the spring Faculty Recital Series program are UW professors of music Steve Barnhart, Theresa Bogard, Jennifer Turpen, Jesse Winecoff and Chi-Chen Wu.

Music to be performed includes Bartók’s “Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion” and “Divertimento for Marimba and Alto Saxophone” by Akira Yuyama. Bogard and Wu will be on pianos; Barnhart and Winecoff, percussion; and Turpen will play the alto saxophone.

Yuyama, born in 1932, studied composition at Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. His works blend traditional Japanese folk sounds with modern Western instruments. “Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion” is a legendary work by Béla Viktor János Bartók, one of the fathers of the modern ethnomusicology movement.

The score requires four performers -- two pianists and two percussionists -- who play seven instruments among them: timpani, bass drum (gran cassa), cymbals, triangle, snare drum (both on- and off- snares), tam-tam (gong) and xylophone.
