Joachim Reinhuber, Associate Professor of Piano at Texas A&M University, Kingsville, will perform a recital at Baylor University on Monday, October 6, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Roxy Grove Hall. Dr. Reinhuber is in high demand as solo and collaborative performer, clinician, and adjudicator in the United States and his native Germany.
Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Joachim Reinhuber comes from a musical family. His first teacher, Franz Calvelli-Adorno, was his grandfather. He then studied with Gisela Sott (Frankfurt), Robert Levin (University of Music, Freiburg), John Perry (Rice University, Houston) and Nancy Garrett (University of Texas at Austin). He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The University of Texas at Austin.
His Baylor program will open with the Rhapsody in B minor, Op. 79, No. 1 by Johannes Brahms, a work that dates from 1879.
Next, Dr. Reinhuber will play music by composers from the Second Viennese School, Arnold Schoenberg and one of his earliest composition pupils, Alban Berg. Schoenberg’s Drei Klavierstücke (“Three Piano Pieces”) was written in 1909, and Berg’s Sonata, Op. 1, dates from that same year.
Following intermission, Joachim Reinhuber will play French composer Gabriel Fauré’s Nocturne in B minor, Op. 119, from 1921.
Closing the program will be two works from 1846 by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin—the Nocturne in B major, Op. 62, No. 1, and then the Polonaise-Fantaisie in A-flat major, Op. 61.
This recital is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
