Great Music for Clarinet and Piano at Goodwin Hall Thursday (1/23/2014)

Lisa Oberlander and Yien Wang perform the third movement of Poulenc's Sonata for Clarinet and Piano.
Lisa Oberlander is the clarinet professor at Columbus State University's Schwob School of Music. As do all of the faculty over there, she has an impressive résumé and a nice website at lisaoberlander.com.

Lisa will be performing in Auburn at Goodwin Hall (map, directions and parking), Thursday night (1/23) at 7:30 PM with pianist Tatiana Muzanova. Admission is $10/$5.

Lisa performed for A Little Lunch Music at the museum back in 2011 with the Fountain City Ensemble. Terrific player, of course. This will be worth dealing with campus parking on a cold night.

Muzanova is graduate teaching assistant to Alexander Kobrin, head of piano at CSU. Video at right is Lisa performing part of a Poulenc sonata with pianist Yien Wang.

What's on the Program?

That Poulenc will be on the program, as well as music by Robert Schumann, Roger Zare (b. 1985), and Johannes Brahms. Click here to see more about the performers and the full program on the AU music calendar event page.

You can hear a basset clarinet (huh?) version of the Roger Zare piece, Nocturne étincelant, on the composer's website. It's a lovely piece and here's the link: http://www.rogerzare.com/etincelant.htm. Lisa will play the version for B-flat clarinet. That's the regular one. :)
