BOONE—The Feb. 19 performance by the Hayes School of Music string faculty and clarinetist Andrea Cheeseman has been rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. in Broyhill Music Center’s Recital Hall at Appalachian State University. Admission is free and the public is invited.
Members of the string trio are Eric Koontz, viola, Nancy Bargerstock, violin, and Kenneth Lurie, cello. Joining the faculty are Margaret Bragg, violin, Audrey Sutton, viola, and Nora Naughton, cello.
The program consists of W. A. Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, K. 581, featuring Cheeseman, and Arnold Schoenberg’s String Sextet, opus 4, “Verklarte Nacht” (Transfigured Night.)
James Toub, a member of the Department of Art faculty in Appalachian’s College of Fine and Applied Arts, will provide a slide projection of turn-of-the-century art work to accompany Schoenberg’s pivotal masterpiece of 1899. The work is heavily influenced by late 19th-century Romantic tendencies, while it foreshadows experimental trends of the early 20th century.
Written when he was 25, the string sextet is Schoenberg’s best-known work. The composition is based on a poem of the same name written by Richard Dehmel in 1896.
