BYU artists, Sonolumina Ensemble plan Jan. 25 recital

The School of Music at Brigham Young University will present an evening of chamber music performed by faculty members and guest artists from the Sonolumina Ensemble in a concert titled “An Evening of Music for Clarinet and Strings” Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

The recital is free, and everyone is welcome to attend.

Faculty artists for the ensemble include BYU’s Alexander Woods on the violin and Julie Bevan on the cello. They will be joined by Sonolumina’s Russell and Leslie Harlow on the clarinet and viola, respectively, and Rebecca Moench on the violin.

The quintet will play selections from Schumann’s “Abendlied,” Tchaikovsky’s “Herbstlied,” Baermann’s “Adagio,” Glazunov’s “Oriental Reverie” and Taneyev’s “Canzona.” After an intermission, they will perform a finale piece by Glazunov titled “Quatour Slave,” op. 26.

The Sonolumina Ensemble is comprised of freelance musicians as well as members of the Utah Symphony. In 2005, the Deseret News reported that the ensemble, formerly known as the Cathedral Chamber Orchestra, played with “lucidity, fluency and articulate eloquence” and “wholly lived up to its name.” The group’s title is derived from "sonoluminescence,” a scientific term that refers to the phenomenon of sound that emits light within a liquid.

For more information about the performance, contact Julie Bevan at (801) 422-2187 or julie_bevan@byu.edu, or visit byuarts.com. For more information about the ensemble, visit www.sonolumina.com.
