BYU's Orpheus Winds plan March 1 recital

Orpheus, of mythological renown, is said to have learned music from the god Apollo himself. A Brigham Young University group that uses his name, Orpheus Winds, will let audiences hear some of that music at a concert Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m., in the Madsen Recital Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center. Admission will be free.

The quintet is comprised of five BYU faculty members: April Clayton, flute; Jaren Hinckley, clarinet; Geralyn Giovannetti, oboe; Christian Smith, bassoon; and Lawrence Lowe, French horn.

They will begin their concert with the Wind Quintet in E flat major, Op. 88, No. 2, by Anton ReichaLento (1770-1836). This selection is made up of three subsections: “Scherzo-Trio,” “Andante grazioso,” and “Finale-Allegro molto.” This will be followed by a woodwind quintet by Elliott Carter. The concert will finish out with the Quintet No. 1, by David Maslanka.

For more information, contact Jaren Hinckley at (801) 422-6339.
