Feb. 8, 1996

by Richard Veit

Helen Ann Shanley, associate professor of flute, will present a faculty recital at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13, in Roxy Grove Hall. She will be assisted by John Cozza, assistant professor of piano; Kathryn Steely, lecturer in violin; and Delaine Fedson, who formerly taught harp in Baylor's Instrumental Division.

The program will open with an early piece of chamber music by Ludwig van Beethoven. His Flute Sonata in B-flat Major was written prior to the year 1792, when the composer made a second (and permanent) move from his hometown of Bonn to Vienna. Dr. Cozza will perform the keyboard part on the School of Music's Boone-Casey fortepiano.

Concluding Mrs. Shanley's recital are a pair of 20th century pieces. The Flute Sonata, Opus 21, of 55-year-old Trygve Madsen is structured in three movements: Allegro moderato, Andante sostenuto, Rondo: Allegro moderato.

Harald Genzmer is a contemporary German composer, born in Bremen in 1909. His Trio for Flute, Viola, and Harp has four movements: Fantasia, Scherzo, Notturno, Thema mit Variationen. The finale consists of variations on an old German folksong.

The recital is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 755-3991.
