Clarinetopia 2016 Schedule

The 2016  schedule is just about final.  The faculty recitals feature a wide variety of repertoire:

Wednesday -“Shall we Dance?” – Leone Buyse and Michael Webster perform dance movements such as Furiant, Dumka, Mazurka, Minuet, Waltz, Jota by Dvorak, Husa, Debussy, Brahms and others.

Thursday – Guy and Tasha Yehuda play Bach, Bernstein, Seter, Ran, and both Mendelssohn Concert Pieces with Tasha playing basset horn.

Saturday – Steve Cohen plays Horovitz, Britten, and Yoshimatsu’s “Fuzzy Bird” Sonata; Ayako Oshima plays Dvorak, Bassi, and Kitazume.

If there are any updates during the next two weeks, they’ll appear here.  Elsa Ludewig-Verdehr is having a hip replaced this week, so will not be able to give her class.  We do hope that she’ll be at the round table on Sunday.  Ramon Wodkowski’s Mouthpiece Metrics will be on Saturday morning.  Housing will be at Bailey Hall, not Rather Hall.

Everyone is welcome to bring music for clarinet duo, trio, or quartet including bass clarinet if you want to bring one.  Some students enjoy informal sessions during free time.  Rooms will be available.
