A Musical Feast Promises Extravaganza of Melodies

Posted: March 4, 2014

A Musical Feast, an eclectic ensemble featuring a pianist, cellist, violinist, trumpet, and percussionist, will perform on Friday, March 14, at 8:00 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium.

The feast begins with the Buffalo debut of Ukrainian pianist Dmitri Novgorodsky, a faculty member at SUNY Fredonia School of Music. Novgorodsky will perform one of Bach’s solo partitas for keyboard, the Partita No.5 in G Major, BWV829 from the composer’s Opus No. 1. He also will join Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal cellist Feng Hew and her husband, BPO violinist Sheh-Jian Tsai, in a performance of one of the most melodious gems of the piano trio repertoire, Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 49.

Daniel Bassin, music director of the University at Buffalo Symphony Orchestra, will lay down his baton and take up his trumpet for a performance of Morton Feldman’s A Very Short Trumpet Piece.

Rounding out the adventurous program, UB percussionist Tom Kolor will be joined by Fredonia State percussionist John Bacon in a performance of minimalist icon composer Steve Reich’s 1972 work, Clapping Music for Two Performers.

General admission tickets are $20; tickets for Burchfield Penney members and students with ID are $10. Purchase tickets online or call (716) 878-6011.
