Claudine Bigelow, guest artist to perform Barto´k during Sept. 7 recital

Brigham Young University School of Music faculty member Claudine Bigelow and guest artist Donald Maurice of the New Zealand School of Music will present a viola recital Saturday, Sept. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

They will perform selections from Béla Bartók’s 44 Duos for Two Violins transcribed for two violas, a repeat of a June 12, 2012 performance in New Zealand when Bigelow was a Fulbright Scholar there.

The pair will be recording a CD of Bartók’s 44 Duos for the BYU-based Tantara Records. It will include the relevant field recordings made by Bartók (some examples will be played in the concert) and a selection of the field transcriptions and photographs that he took during his ethnomusicological journeys. They are working in close collaboration with the Bartók Archive in Budapest.

Bigelow is head of viola and chamber music studies at the School of Music. Recital appearances have taken her around the United States, Europe and New Zealand. Claudine has played with the viola sections of the National and Utah Symphonies, Smithsonian Chamber Orchestra and the National Chamber Orchestra.

She served on the executive board of the American Viola Society for six years. In 2005 she hosted the Primrose International Viola Competition and has since served as jury chair, adjudicator and on the advisory board.


Maurice is also a member of the New Zealand Piano Quartet and performs regularly as a soloist. He has presented at more than a dozen international viola congresses. In 2001 he was awarded the Silver Alto Clef by the International Viola Society and in 2007 was made an Honorary Life Member of the American Viola Society.
