My faculty recital of mostly chamber music includes the world premieres of three pieces: Jesse Jones's "Yonder," for bassoon, violin, viola, cello, and piano; John Fitz Rogers's "Still Life With Shadow" for flute, bassoon, and piano; and Mandy Fang's "Lament" for solo bassoon. I'm incredibly honored to play these new works by Jesse, a friend and former colleague, now at Oberlin; and my wonderful friends and USC colleagues John and Mandy. Other works by Mark Mellits and Carl Schimmel. Special thanks to the superb and dynamic NYC-based cellist and DeCoda leader Claire Bryant for staying around in SC following a nearby concerto performance to join us for this concert!
Performers: Michael Harley, bassoon; Phillip Bush, piano; Jennifer Parker-Harley, flute; Ari Streisfeld, violin; Daniel Sweaney, viola; Claire Bryant, cello; and Reed Hanna, bassoon.
