Mount faculty Dr. Mark Carlson, euphonium and guest artist Kirsten Ihde, piano will present a recital of music that bookends the 20th Century. Oskar Böhme's Concerto in F for cornet exemplifies the scope, formal elegance and technical prowess of the turn of the romantic concerto at the fin-de-siècle. German composer-virtuoso Böhme flourished in St. Petersburg but then disappeared, presumably to a Russian gulag. In the second half Finnish composer-pianist Jukka Linkola's landmark Concerto for Euphonium embodies the rise of chromaticism, Scandinavian, and jazz at the end of the 20th Century. This piece lured Carlson to spend a year studying in Finland with the work commissioner. Böhme's capricious 24 Melodic Exercises round out the program. Free Admission.
