San Francisco Chamber Music Society:
A Concert from March 10, 1980

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 95 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

The fifth concert of the 1979-80 season of the San Francisco Chamber Music Society, featured a fascinating mixture of very old and quite new music. The program began with a short talk about, and demonstration of, the piri, an oboe like instrument used in Korean music, given by the noted musicologist, Jonathan Condit. This is all by means of introduction to Isang Yun’s 1971 composition “Piri” which is scored for oboe and performed here by William Bennett. Soprano Judith Nelson then performs Luigi Rossi’s solo cantata “Sopra Conca D’Argento” and Nicholas Lanier’s “Lament of Hero on the Death of Leander” while being accompanied by Laurette Goldberg on harpsichord and Susie Napper on the viola da Gamba. Next is the world premiere of Richard Felciano’s “From and To, With” a distinctly modern composition for violin and piano and performed by the husband and wife duo of Daniel and Machiko Kobialka. Following an intermission the Kobialkas return to the stage for William Bolcom’s “Fancy Tales” followed by two more cantatas, one by Alessandro Scarlatti that also uses the story of Hero and Leander as its theme, and the other by Georg Philipp Telemann. This concert was recorded live at the Fireman’s Fund Forum in San Francisco on March 10, 1980, by Steve Wolfe.

Note: the Felciano and Bolcom works were commissioned through the Norman Fromm Composer’s Fund
