Doctor of Musical Arts recital Sep. 22 features music written in the last 50 years

The Yale School of Music presents Aaron Hodgson, trumpet, in a Doctor of Musical Arts recital on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall. Hodgson will be joined by trumpeters Tom Bergeron and Paul Murphy, who are both alumni of the Yale School of Music, and by pianist Daniel Schlosberg.

Dedicated to expanding the repertoire and audiences for trumpet, Hodgson will perform a program of music written in the past fifty years. The program opens with the Passagen-Processional, a trumpet trio written in 2010 by Moritz Eggert, and will continue with two multi-movement works: William Rowson’s recent Sonata for trumpet and piano and Robert Henderson’s Variation Movements from 1967.

The second half will begin with two pieces by younger composers: Sung in a Rickshaw by Gabriel Dharmoo (b. 1981), and Song Without Words by David J. Lang (b. 1988). The concert will conclude with another piece for three trumpets, Tobin Stokes’s Trio Lyrical from 2010.
