Dr. Nave Graham performs in her first solo Faculty Recital since joining the UM Music Department in August.  Our audience has seen her perform with the Faculty Woodwind Quintet, as a guest performer with Dr. Adam Estes, and as part of the First Tuesdays in Bryant Hall Noontime Music Series, but on January 24th, she’ll take the stage in Nutt Auditorium with Adrienne Park on piano for a recital of flute music.

Dr. Graham says these are some of her favorite works for flute, including two of her favorite French composers.  Debussy's "Bilitis Six Épigraphes Antiques" for flute and piano was based on poems by Pierre Louys called "Chanson de Bilitis," and Graham's colleague Prof. Amanda Johnston will perform the original poems in French as a part of the recital.  Jolivet's "Chant de Linos" is his most performed work, and is one of the most difficult works ever written for flute. Graham describes it as intense and mystical.

The program also includes two pieces by living composers inspired by jazz. Graham and Park will perform Amanda Harberg's "Court Dances," a 2017 three-movement work for flute and piano that is written to conform with the structure of baroque dances, which makes a pleasing counterpoint to its modern, jazzy musical style.  Graham will perform a solo flute piece by David Heath that was written in tribute to jazz great John Coltrane. "The piece features a flashy, jazzy, improvised style and is one of my favorite pieces for solo flute," she says.
