Faculty Recital Featuring Jennifer Toro Mazzoni, Flute; and Matthew Mazzoni, Piano- 1/27/13
Flutist Jennifer Toro Mazzoni (Webster Alum, BM '03) and duo partner pianist A. Matthew Mazzoni team up for an exciting and adventurous program for the flute, ranging from the sublime to the cutting edge. Gaubert's exquisite 3rd Sonata recalls the great French master composers of the 19th and early 20th Centuries while exploiting the many colorful timbres exploited by the master French flutists of the early 20th Century. French-Canadian composer Denis Gougeon's music pushes the envelope through extended sonic techniques creating a beautiful piece of no-so-abstract music. Paul Taffanel's dazzling showpiece on themes from Weber's Der Freischutz will take the listener on a wild adventure of operatic drama. Finally, Thomas Robertello's transcription of Chopin's masterful Cello Sonata proves that great music knows no boundaries. This elegiac, enigmatic piece is Chopin at his finest, with mature music that reaches deep into the soul. You won't want to miss what will surely be one of the highlight instrumental recitals in the St. Louis Area.
