LIBBY LARSEN: Jazz Variations
R. CLARKE: Dumka
BAKER: Sonata for Cello and Piano

David Baker’s Sonata for Cello and Piano subtly combines European traditions with African-American elements. Baker founded the jazz studies department at Indiana University, composed over 2000 pieces, received an Emmy Award, and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Mexican composer Arturo Marquez incorporates forms and styles of his native country, and gained an international reputation in the 1990s when he was introduced to the world of Latin ballroom dancing. Inspired by those movements and rhythms, he wrote a series of pulsating Danzones which fuse Cuban and Veracruz styles.

Performances will be 75 minutes and there will be no intermission. Please check the “Concert Protocols” page before attending for the most up-to-date protocols.
