Oct. 3, 2003

by Richard Veit

Kevin Chiarizzio, assistant professor of trombone at Baylor University's School of Music, will present a faculty recital at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, in Roxy Grove Hall. He will be joined by Elvia Puccinelli, assistant professor of piano and director of the collaborative piano program.

Chiarizzio's program, which features selections ranging from the middle 18th century to the eve of the 21st century, will open with Austrian composer Georg Wagenseil's two-movement Trombone Concerto of 1762, followed Joseph Alexander's Oh! My Phoebus from 1999. He also will perform Georg Wilkenschildt's Five Pieces in Different Keys from 1935 and Richard Peaslee's Arrows of Time from 1994.

One transcription for trombone will be included -- the slow movement from Sergei Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata, Op. 19, written in 1901.

Chiarizzio has been a member of the Baylor music faculty since 2000. Puccinelli joined the faculty the following year.

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