Join UF School of Music for a faculty recital with Dr. Kristen Stoner, Flute, on February 19, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in Music Building, Room 101 (MUB 101). Stoner will be accompanied by Dr. Manabu Takasawa, Piano, of the University of Rhode Island.
The program begins with American composer Eric Ewazen’s Sonata No. 1. Composed in 2011, the contemporary work by Ewazen is completely accessible, tonal, melodic and audience-friendly. Next the world premiere of Dr. Paul Richards’s work Entanglements, a delightfully complex and engaging work composed in 2016 for the Duo Anno 1647, will be performed. In the composer’s words, “Entanglements explores many of the ways that two distinctly different instruments can become embroiled, enmeshed, interwoven, and ensnared.”
The second half of the program is a fascinating, four-movement Romantic-style sonata, originally composed for violin by Marguerite Canal. Canal was a French composer, only the second woman ever to win the Prix de Rome. This Sonata for Violin and Piano was the work she composed during her stay in Rome in 1921. The work was published and she became successful at a young age, and she even married the publisher. However, when the relationship dissolved, she was blacklisted by all French publishers and she spent the rest of her career in relative obscurity. Only recently have performers and musicologists rediscovered her beautiful compositions. This is the premiere of the flute and piano arrangement, completed by Dr. Kristen Stoner as part of a Scholarship Enhancement Grant from the College of the Arts.
