Sept. 6, 2001

by Richard Veit

Christina Edelen, lecturer in harpsichord, will present a faculty recital entitled "Baroque in the Browning" at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in the Armstrong Browning Library's Foyer of Meditation. She will be assisted by her husband, cellist Fred Edelen of the Houston Symphony Orchestra, her father, associate professor of vocal studies Daniel Scott, and by lecturer in violin Joan Brickley.

The program, which consists entirely of works by Johann Sebastian Bach, will open with the composer's Sonata in G major for viola da gamba and harpsichord, BWV 1027 (with cellist Fred Edelen). A transcription for solo harpsichord of one of Bach's many pieces for lute, the Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro, BWV 998 will follow.

With Mrs. Edelen accompanying, Scott will sing Bach's Cantata No. 203, "Amore traditore," a secular composition dealing with unrequited love. Another piece for solo harpsichord will follow, the Fantasy and Fugue in A minor, BWV 904, written in 1725.

Concluding the recital will be the Sonata in C minor for violin and harpsichord, BWV 1017, with Mrs. Brickley as the string player.

Mrs. Edelen has been a member of the Baylor music faculty since 1989. She holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the Indiana University School of Music.

This recital is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
