The Department of Music presents performance highlights from the year. Phil Woods' Sonata For Alto Sax And Piano is an exciting piece, and is different, not because it incorporates jazz into a concert piece, but because it requires performers to take a creative as well as re-creative attitude in its preparation and performance, as improvisation is involved. Three vocalists who participated in a recent masterclass with alumna Joan Rodgers perform. And the concert concludes with Louise Farrenc's Trio for flute, cello and piano (1856) which melds Classical form with a flair for the Romantic in a chamber gem of beautiful lyricism.
