Music Faculty Recital
Mr. Andreas Xenopoulos, Dr. Thomas Ediger; Mr. Kenneth Meints, and Dr. Jacob Bartlett
Tuesday at 5:30, members of the Music Faculty offered a recital in the Jindra Fine Arts Recital Hall.
I uploaded some photographs of the event, which attracted a good audience for the excellent music and song.
With Tom Ediger on the piano, Jake Bartlett thrilled the crowd with his bass-baritone voice. His numbers included songs from both Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Mark Adamo.
While I took some photographs of Tom and Jake, I will wait until Dr. Bartlett's own recital on October 29. This presentation will feature many Shakespeare-inspired songs.
Andreas Xenopoulos offered a wonderful rendition of Frederic Chopin's Piano Sonata, Op. 35, No.2, which includes the familiar funeral dirge most all of us know well.
I recorded a few minutes of Andreas's performance for your enjoyment:
Thomas Ediger, on piano, and Ken Meints, on trombone, brought the recital to an impressive close with a Concertino by Ferdinand David.
You can listen to a few minutes of Ediger and Meints:
