The Yale School of Music’s Faculty Artist Series presents a recital by Ransom Wilson, world-renowned flute soloist and chamber musician, on Wednesday, December 17 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Memorial Hall (470 College St at Wall St). Though Mr. Wilson performs often with his faculty colleagues in chamber music and as a conductor, this is a rare opportunity for area music lovers to hear him in a solo recital. The program will feature music by Fauré, Dutilleux, Martinu, and Martin. Wilson, considered one of the world’s preeminent flutists, will perform with pianist Ken Noda.
