The Brigham Young University School of Music will present a faculty recital featuring Jaren Hinckley on clarinet and Scott Holden on piano Thursday, Sept. 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.
The duo typically plays selections that audiences rarely hear in performances, and this recital will be no exception, Holden said.
“Jaren picks interesting programs that might be more on the fringes of traditional repertoire,” he said. “He likes exploring and presenting a program that some people might be unfamiliar with.”
For instance, Victor Babin’s “Hillandale Waltzes” is “full of high jinks,” Holden said. “Babin takes a bland theme and gets pure gold out of what is so pedestrian.”
Other pieces on the program will include “Frensham Pond” by William Lloyd Webber and “Elegy” by Frank Bencriscutto.
Hinckley received a doctorate in clarinet performance from Florida State University. He has performed with the Utah Symphony, the Manhattan School of Music Philharmonia and the Canyonlands New Music Ensemble.
Holden is active as a soloist and chamber musician. He earned music degrees from the University of Michigan, the Manhattan School of Music and the Juilliard School, where he received the Horowitz Prize.
