The McIntire Department of Music is pleased to present the 2018-2019 University of Virginia Chamber Music Series. This annual series, which presents innovative performances by the University of Virginia's world-class performance faculty and celebrated guest artists, is comprised of six professional performances for the University and the central Virginia community. These intimate concerts are programmed to offer both new and traditional works that will delight audiences of all musical tastes.
Bassoonist Elizabeth Roberts ushers in 2019 with an afternoon of compelling works for bassoon and piano on January 27 at 3:30 pm. Alongside faculty member John Mayhood, Roberts will perform Johann Friedrich Fasch’s lyrical Sonata in C Major, Franz Berwald’s dazzling Konzertstück for bassoon and piano, and Marcel Bitsch’s playful Concertino, along with selections from Reinhold Glière’s 11 Pieces, Op. 25. Roberts will also perform works written for the deeply resonant contrabassoon, including Georges Migot’s Prélude, Graham Waterhouse’s Aztec Ceremonies, Op. 37, and Daniel Dorff’s Concerto for contrabassoon and piano.
