Spotlight on Faculty – Vertex Saxophone Quartet: Winter Thoughts
Event summary
Featuring the Vertex Saxophone Quartet performing music of Piazzolla, Torke, Brooks, Wirshba, Wilson, and Wiedoeft.
Event details

Featuring the Vertex Saxophone Quartet: Chisato Eda Marling, soprano saxophone; Barbara Brown, alto saxophone; Chris Doser, tenor saxophone; Nancy Boone-Bahr, baritone saxophone.     

The program features music with a winter theme, including “Winter Thoughts” by recent Setnor School of Music-Syracuse University grad Carle Wirshba, and “Buenos Aires Winter” from The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Argentinian tango master Astor Piazzolla. The quartet warms things up with “July” by Eastman grad Michael Torke and “Come Sunday Morning” – inspired by gospel music from the deep South – by Eastman grad Dana Wilson. Rounding things out is “Four-Play” by Richard Brooks – blending jazz, blues, and contemporary classical music – and the pure fun of “Saxema” by Rudy Wiedoeft, written in 1920 in an exuberant, jazzy style. Just the thing to celebrate Hochstein’s Centennial!

Since 1991, Spotlight on Faculty has highlighted the prestigious Hochstein faculty in a variety of ensembles and musical genres from chamber music and dance to jazz, contemporary, and classical. A key feature of the Spotlight on Faculty concerts is that Hochstein faculty members work together to create their own program and submit proposals to perform on the series.

Each concert begins at 7:00 pm, lasts about an hour, and is followed by a “meet the artists” reception.

Admission is $10 per person, with a $20 family maximum. Concerts are free to Hochstein students/families, faculty, and staff.

The Spotlight on Faculty concert series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Spotlight on Faculty – Music of Schubert and Kreisler
Event summary
Featuring Tyler Cassidy-Heacock, soprano; Cora Swenson Lee, cello; and Warner Iveris, guitar, performing works by Schubert and Kreisler, including pieces associated with David Hochstein. Part of Hochstein’s Centennial Celebration!
Event details

The program is built around two pieces David Hochstein is known to have played on violin: Schubert’s lied “Ave Maria” and Fritz Kreisler’s “Liebesleid.”

Schubert is now well known for his song cycles for piano and voice, but there is anecdotal evidence that he may have also played guitar. Using arrangements made by 19th-century Parisian guitarist Napoléon Coste, Tyler Cassidy-Heacock will be singing three Schubert songs accompanied Warner Iveris on guitar.

Cora Swenson Lee will perform Schubert’s famous Arpeggione Sonata, originally written for a type of bowed guitar-like instrument of the same name and piano, on cello with guitar accompaniment.

Austrian-born violinist Fritz Kreisler was one of the most famous classical musicians in the world during the first decade of the 20th century and his original compositions remain staples of the violin repertoire. Lee and Iveris will perform Kreisler’s “Liebesleid” as an homage to David Hochstein.

Since 1991, Spotlight on Faculty has highlighted the prestigious Hochstein faculty in a variety of ensembles and musical genres from chamber music and dance to jazz, contemporary, and classical. A key feature of the Spotlight on Faculty concerts is that Hochstein faculty members work together to create their own program and submit proposals to perform on the series.

This concert features diverse styles of chamber music pieces by four composers. The program includes the classical/jazz musician Claude Bolling’s swinging and playful Jazz Suites, Jewish klezmer music introduced in Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 finale, Arvo Pärt’s serene and solemn Mozart-Adagio for Piano Trio, and Alfred Schnittke’s quirky and boisterous Gogol Suite for Two Pianos.
