Recitals and Master classes in Indiana
On February 15th I gave a lecture-recital on extended bassoon techniques at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in Bloomington, IN. A focal point of the talk was using the International Phonetic Alphabet to describe and explain various internally generated extended techniques such as flutter-tongue, multi-phonics and harmonics. I used as examples, Sequenza XII of Berio and Huit piÃ¨ces pour basson et ensemble instrumental by Philippe Hersant, among other works. Thank you to Professors William Ludwig and Kathleen Mclean for having me as a guest.
On February 16th I presented a master class and solo recital at Butler University in Indianapolist, IN. I had a terrific time working with the students there and performing with bassoon professor Doug Spaniol.
