SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Flutist Donna Elaine is the featured artist for the 2015-2016 Hoff-Barthelson Music School HB Artist Series on Sunday, April 17 at the Greenville Community Church, Scarsdale.
Elaine will be joined by fellow Hoff-Barthelson faculty members Tomoko Uchino, piano and Joseph Piscitelli, flute.
Included on the program are Carl Krüger’s Suite in 3 Sätzen; Yuko Uebayashi’s Au-delà du Temps pour deux flûtes et piano; Carl Reinecke’s Ballade, Op. 288; and Deviations on The Carnival of Venice, Mike Mower’s new set of 10 variations in different styles – jazz, waltz, rock, salsa, swing – on the theme.
About the Program:
The flute repertoire is curiously deprived of Romantic flute music. Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Berlioz, Wagner, Verdi, Dvorak – not one of these composers wrote works for the flute.
Elaine’s recital focuses on works from and written in the style of the Romantic period. 3 Sätzen, an out-of-print work for flute and piano by Carl Krüger, a gifted composer from a north German family of professional musicians, has been reprinted by the publisher for this performance, said a release.
Donna Elaine is principal flute in the New Choral Society Orchestra and teaches throughout the New York area.
Admission to the recital is $18, $15 for seniors (65-plus) and free to HBMS students and students 18 years of age and younger.
Tickets can be ordered by calling (914) 723-1169 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and at the door.
