The Ensemble

Last night I attended a concert by an American Ensemble at CRK Recital Hall,Payap University, Kaew Nawarat Campus featuring Nicole Paglialonga (violin) Phillip O. Paglialonga (clarinet) and Tracy Cowden (Piano). All musicians are associated wih unversities in the U.S.A.

The concert featured 20th and 21st Century compositions as below,

irving-shain

Robert Muczynsk

Time Pieces, Op. 43 – Robert Muczynski (1929- 2010)

Capricious Variations – Daniel Perttu (b. 1979)

Four Souvenirs – Paul Schoenfield (b. 1947)

Imprint – Todd Goodmam (b. 1977)

Slang – Libby Larsen –  (b. 1950)

All a bit too modern for me, although the second half of the programme was a bit more enjoyable.

The embedded video of “Four Souvenirs” by Paul Schoenfield: Samba, Tango, Tin Pan Alley, Square Dance at least had melody!.
