Chamber Recital To Commemorate 9/11

RELEASED: Sept. 1, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire department of music and theatre arts in cooperation with University Centers and Programs will present a recital of vocal and instrumental chamber music on Sept. 11. The free concert will begin at 2 p.m. in Phillips Recital Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

The program is dedicated to the memory of those whose lives were lost or changed in the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, and to all people throughout the world who have experienced and continue to suffer from acts of violence.

Participating musicians are soprano Mitra Sadeghpour, oboist Christa Garvey and flutist Tim Lane — all members of the UW-Eau Claire music faculty, with pianist Beverly Soll, UW-Eau Claire's arts/events coordinator.

The concert will begin with a movement from the "Trio Sonata in C minor," BWV 1079 by J. S. Bach and close with Bach's elegant "Bist du bei mir." A set titled "Lachrymae (Tears)" features songs of the English lutenist/song writer John Dowland. Tim Lane's "Remembrance" for solo flute will premiere on this concert. The traditional ballad "'Tis the Last Rose of Summer," a song from William Grant Still's "Songs of Separation," texts of A.E. Housman set by Arthur Somervell and Samuel Barber, a World War I poem by Charles Ives, and a wordless "Vocalise" by Rachmaninoff comprise a segment on "War and Loss." Hope and faith are explored in two American tunes, "Amazing Grace" and "When Jesus Wept," a "Meditation on the Eternity of Jesus" from Messiaen's "Quartet for the End of Time" composed in a concentration camp and the Yom Kippur text "Avinu malkeynu." Many pieces on the program are from the vocal tradition and texts are printed whether or not the "songs" are being sung.
