Guest duo to go to "Extremes" in BYU recital Nov. 11

Brigham Young University’s School of Music presents “Extremes,” a duo recital featuring guest artists Jean Kopperud on the clarinet and Stephen Gosling on the piano, Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Tickets are $6 and can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting byuarts.com.

Kopperud recently commissioned the seven pieces on the program, encouraging the composers to go to “extremes.” The concert includes the piece “Amygdala” by BYU faculty composer Steven Ricks, which received its world premiere by the duo at the TRANSIT festival in Leuven, Belgium, in October 2008.

Composer David Felder’s piece “Rare Air” will be performed in six short movements interspersed throughout the concert. The program will also include Eric Moe’s “Grand Prismatic,” named after Yellowstone Park’s Grand Prismatic Spring.

Kopperud and Gosling will present the world premieres of James Pimosch’s “Times like These,” Jason Eckardt’s “Rendition,” Paolo Cavallone’s “(Dis)tensioni” and Harvey Sollberger’s “Nemesis.”

A graduate of The Juilliard School and former student of Nadia Boulanger in France, Kopperud has toured the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, China and Australia as a concert soloist and chamber musician.

She performs with the New York New Music Ensemble, Omega, Ensemble 21, Washington Square Chamber Players and University at Buffalo’s Sinfonietta. She is an associate professor at The State University of New York Buffalo and teaches a class called “On the Edge” in the Evening Division at The Juilliard School.

A native of Sheffield, England, pianist Gosling moved to New York to study with Oxana Yablonskaya at The Juilliard School, where he received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. He performs with the New York New Music Ensemble, Ensemble Sospeso, Columbia University’s Sinfonietta Moderna and Ne(x)tworks.
