A recital in Sudler Hall will feature soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon and violinist Jessica Oddie, the two winners of the annual Friends of Music at Yale Undergraduate Competition. The recital will take place at 3 pm on Sunday, February 21, 2010 in Sudler Recital Hall in WL Harkness Hall. Both performers are undergraduates in Yale College who study with Yale School of Music faculty.
Fitz Gibbon, who is a guest artist in Yale Opera’s upcoming production of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, will perform Poulenc’s Fiançailles pour rire, Richard Strauss’s Drei Lieder der Ophelia, Op. 67, and Elliott Carter’s Warble for lilac-time, written in 1943.
Oddie, a winner of several violin competitions who has soloed with such ensembles as the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, will perform two movements from Bach’s Sonata No. 3 in C major for solo violin; three short pieces by Fritz Kreisler; Saint-Saens’s Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso; and Brahms’s Sonatensatz. The two will perform together in Mozart’s Schon lacht der holde Frühling, KV 580, for soprano, violin, and piano. They will be joined by pianist Ryan McCullough, a graduate student at the University of Southern California.
