All-Mozart Faculty Recital Set for Feb. 7

Feb. 5, 1997

by Richard Veit

Soprano Robin Fisher, assistant professor of vocal studies at Baylor University, will present an all-Mozart program at 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, in Roxy Grove Hall. She will be accompanied on harpsichord and fortepiano by Siegbert Rampe, a native of Germany who concertizes and records throughout Europe.

Fisher joined the Baylor music faculty in the fall of 1994. After studying voice in Germany and Austria, she sang for several years in principal roles at the Wuppertal Opera Company in Germany, as well as in some of the major opera houses of western and central Europe, including Paris, Prague and Hamburg.

Her Baylor recital will include thirteen songs by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, ranging from the year 1768 ("An die Freude"), when the composer was 12, to 1791 ("Sehnsucht nach dem Frühlinge" and "Das Kinderspiel"), the year of his death.

In addition to accompanying Fisher in the vocal works, Siegbert Rampe also will perform two of Mozart's compositions for solo keyboard--the Adagio in B Minor, K. 540, and the Fantasie in C Minor, K. 475.

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