Vista program to illuminate music by Kodaly, Haas, Schubert

November 25, 2009

vistaThe Yale School of Music presents a concert in its Vista series on Tuesday, December 15 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven). Vista: A Fresh Look at Chamber Music is a part of the School’s renowned chamber music program in which diverse ensembles, coached and selected by faculty, not only perform but prepare the audience for the music they are about to hear with spoken commentary. This Vista concert will feature both strings and winds, opening with Zoltan Kodaly’s Duo for Violin and Cello, followed by Pavel Haas’s Quintet for Winds. The program concludes with Franz Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet for Piano and Strings. Wendy Sharp is the director of the chamber music program at the Yale School of Music. Mitchell Korn, a visiting lecturer, will work with the students on their spoken presentations. Korn, the vice president of community engagement of the Nashville Symphony and a senior lecturer in music and community at Vanderbilt University, will also lead one of the School of Music’s think tanks, working with students on how to prepare a community engagement event.

Admission to the Vista program is free. For more information, visit the School of Music’s website, music.yale.edu, or call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158.
