Lara Saville to give faculty oboe recital Nov. 6

The Brigham Young University School of Music presents Lara Saville in a faculty oboe recital Thursday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

The performance is free and the public is welcome to attend.

She will perform music by Henri Dallier, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Carl Reinecke and Benjamin Britten.

Saville says "Temporal Variations" by Britten will be especially interesting to the audience, because of the history of the work.

"It was written in 1936, right before World War II," Saville said. "It has a very strong antiwar statement. It was only performed once in his lifetime, and then lost for years in someone's attic. It was found in the 1980s, so it's just recently come on the oboe scene. I don't think that the Britten work has been played at BYU yet."

Saville, a doctoral student at Arizona State University, is teaching oboe classes at BYU this semester while full-time faculty member Geralyn Giovannetti is on sabbatical. Saville graduated from BYU in 1999.

She will be assisted by Robin Hancock on the piano and Laura Griffiths on the horn.

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
