Friends of Rain, Lewis & Clark College’s Faculty Contemporary Music Ensemble, kicks off the 2008-2009 season with a concert of enchanting works written for smaller chamber groups. The performance takes place Friday, Nov. 21 at 8:00 p.m. in Evans Auditorium. The event is free, with a suggested donation of $15 at the door.
The program features Finnish composer Kalevi Aho’s lyrical, probing work, Seven Inventions and a Postlude, performed by Mitch Iimori and Dorien de León; György Kurtág’s dramatic and evocative Hommage á R.S., which pays homage to Robert Schumann, performed by Elizabeth Harcombe, Dunja Jennings, and Miriam English-Ward; Lowell Liebermann’s jazz-inflected Sonata for Flute and Piano, performed by Nancy Teskey and Carol Biel; Vincent Persichetti’s haunting and compelling Parable for Solo Horn, performed by William Stalnaker; the premiere of Lewis & Clark’s percussion faculty Brett Paschal’s Springwater Road for solo marimba; and Arvo Pärt’s lovely atmospheric work, Spiegel im Spiegel, performed by Elisa Boynton and Stephanie Thompson.
