LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Dickinson College Faculty Wind Quintet will present a rare performance of Arnold Schoenberg's influential "Wind Quintet, Op. 26" on Tuesday, April 21, at 8 p.m. in the Rooke Recital Hall of the Weis Music Building at Bucknell University.
The performance, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Kushell Music Endowment.
The concert will open with a brief discussion of the significance of "Wind Quintet, Op. 26," in which Schoenberg first put forth his revolutionary dodecaphonic (12-tone) system of composition.
The Dickinson College Faculty Wind Quintet features contributing faculty members Mary Hannigan, flute, Jill Marchione, oboe, Elisabeth Stimpert, clarinet, Jeb Wallace, horn, and Kimberly Buchar Kelley, bassoon.
In addition to their work at Dickinson College, each of these artist-performers maintains an active musical career, appearing with area orchestras, chamber ensembles, and presenting solo recitals.
The ensemble's repertoire includes classics of wind quintet literature, as well as contemporary works that explore current trends in the music world.
More information or music samples are available on the Quintet's website.
