On Monday, October 8 at 8 pm in Nutt Auditorium, Michael Rowlett and Amanda Johnston will present “Music From Near and Far,” a clarinet and piano recital.  The program is free and open to the public.  Two works of the works performed are by composers connected to Oxford and the university.  Rowlett will perform the Three Pieces for Clarinet Solo by Gene Saucier, who taught woodwinds for thirty years at UM.  This charming set of unaccompanied pieces was dedicated to Benny Goodman and was written fifty years ago, in 1962.  The duo will also perform a clarinet sonata written in 2009 by Stanley Friedman, who teaches composition at UM.  The sonata is based on sketches Friedman originally wrote for an opera about the life of Baroque-era painter Artemesia Gentileschi, and the dramatic character of the material is evident in this four-movement chamber work.

The program will also feature pieces by composers from around the world: Lithuanian-born Canadian composer Talivaldis Kenins, Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, and Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.  Please join us for music from around the world, and from our own backyard.
