Developments in Contemporary Classical Music: A Personal View

Wednesday, Feb. 10, 12:30 p.m. Sadie’s Place, Kent Library.
Classical music is changing along with the rest of culture. It has been forced to come to terms with developments in technology, growing multiculturalism, and changes in society and the economy. Composers Dr. Robert Fruehwald and flutist Mr. Paul Thompson will discuss and demonstrate these developments using examples from Fruehwald’s own works. The presentation will include the live performance of music for flute, piano and video including excerpts from Hymntunes I (solo flute), Hymntunes III (video), Turkish Preludes (solo flute), Irish Fantasies (bass flute), and Sonata Mozartiana (flute and piano). Refreshments will be served.
