Denison Students Present Flute Music Concert
Posted: November 26, 2001
Denison University flute students and members of the University's woodwind chamber ensembles will come together to perform a concert at 8 p.m. on Tuesday (Dec. 4) in Burke Recital Hall. The students will play a variety of solos, duets and trios. Closing the concert, all the flutists will perform as a flute choir playing two arrangements of Renaissance vocal music. The concert will be conducted by Assistant Professor Kristen Stoner.
Soloists include: sophomore Emily Trunkely, accompanied by senior Krista Wiseman, playing the second movement of Otar Taktakishvili's "Sonata for Flute and Piano," a slow movement that is lyrical in style; senior Mary Hallan playing part of Johann Sebastian Bach's "Partita in A Minor," a piece that is challenging to perform live; and first-year student Lauren Gilanyi playing Katherine Hoover's "Kokopeli," a work that is evocative of the Native American mythological flute-playing figure and which has become a standard in flute literature only 11 years after its composition.
First-year students Gilanyi and Carolyn Ramsden will play Robert Muczynski "Duos for Flute and Clarinet." "Each movement of this work has a different character, from bluesy to whimsical to introspective" says Stoner. A second duet, "Canonic Sonata No. 1," by Georg Philipp Teleman will be played by first-year students Darby Morris and Laura Reuther. In this work, each flultist is playing exactly the same part but at a canon of only one measure apart.
Hallan, Wiseman and first-year student LeAnn Dickson join together as a trio to play Jacques Casterede's "Flutes en Vacances," a neo-romantic work with expressive harmonies.
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Stoner earned her master of music degree and her doctor of musical arts degree in flute performance at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music where she served as principal or co-principal flutist for the Opera Workshop, the Philharmonic Orchestra and the Wind Symphony. She joined the Denison faculty in September 1999.
