Recital at Ulrich Museum of Art

Tuesday, March 15 6:00pm

The Lieurance Woodwind Quintet will present an evening of chamber music in this intimate gallery atmosphere. Here you will be able to hear and almost feel the music, the vibrations, and the emotions. Discover for yourself what The Washington Post described as "sustained depth and sensitivity" in a program of varied music. Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin is well known and loved in its orchestral version. The French composer’s impression of a baroque suite, originally composed for solo piano, will be presented in a transcription for wind quintet by Mason Jones. German composer August Klughardt’s Quintett, Op. 79 is a staple of Romantic chamber repertoire. Its lush sonorities and dramatic moments are sure to move the audience. Ingolf Dahl’s Allegro and Arioso for Five Wind Instruments, composed in 1942, shows stylistic influence of the Second Viennese school of Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg. The singular harmonies of this work feature free atonality and complex chromaticism. The metric complexity brings a new level of rhythmic interest. Come hear five wind players extracted from the symphony orchestra blending their diverse timbres, displaying their versatility and virtuosity in a rare and unusual setting.
