  • Image preview 7:30pm - 9:30pm: Paul Roberts (Concert Pianist)

    Paul Roberts presents a recital ranging from innocence to experience, from the miniature to the monumental, from the stories of childhood to the tragic power of epic poetry.

    Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, first published in 1854, is one of the greatest piano works of the 19th century, celebrated for its emotional power and an architectural strength that alternates formidable virtuosity with exquisite poetry. In Liszt’s lifetime the Sonata was regarded as a descriptive work inspired by Goethe’s tragic drama Faust, one of the pinnacles of German literature. Though Liszt never made this connection himself, there is ample evidence to show that he was deeply fascinated by Faust throughout his life. Roberts, who is currently writing a book, Reading Liszt, will examine the literary background and suggest that the Sonata might be interpreted in operatic terms, with the main characters of Goethe’s drama—Faust, Mephistopheles and Gretchen—as the protagonists.

    As an antidote to Lisztian extroversion his recital will begin with Debussy’s charmingly modest and witty Children’s Corner, six miniatures dedicated to Debussy’s five-year-old daughter depicting the toys and fantasies of her nursery. The dedication reads: “To my dear little Chouchou with fond apologies from her father for what follows.”

    Assistant Professor of Music Lance Inouye has been named a winner of the thirteenth annual International Conductors Workshop and Competition, held January 15-18, 2016, in Spring Hill, Georgia.

    Sixteen participants representing Hong Kong, China, Xalapa, Mexico, Pihtipudas, Finland, Chinandega, Nicaragua, Yilon, Taiwan, Mexico City, Mexico, and Indiana, California, Arizona, New York, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia, conducted the professional ICWC orchestra on a culminating free concert on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in works by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Barber, Mendelssohn, Verdi, and Johann Strauss, Jr.

    The conductors participated in seven rehearsals during the four day workshop which has become one of the most well-known and highly regarded conductor training programs in the nation. Maestro Adrian Gnam, director of the ICWC, said, “I was really excited about this group of conductors. They have already shown great potential as conductors from the orchestras which they have conducted. This concert was absolutely wonderful, and it showed the progress the conductors made in such a short time.” 

    The other two winners, in addition to Dr. Inouye, were Sergey Bogza, originally from Taganrog, Russia now conducting in St. Cloud, Minnesota; and H. Lok Kim, originally from Seoul, South Korea who now conducts the Covenant Academy Orchestra in Ringgold, Georgia.

    The conductors were led through intense instruction on orchestral conducting technique, rehearsal procedure and musical preparation of standard repertoire for full symphony orchestra. As part of his award, Dr. Inouye will be invited to guest conduct in Georgia next year.
