Marianne Gedigian, Professor of Flute at The University of Texas at Austin, and her UT colleague, pianist Colette Valentine, will present a recital at Baylor University on Thursday, February 5, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Roxy Grove Hall.
Ms. Gedigian was a regular performer with the Boston Symphony Orchestra for over a decade, including several seasons as Acting Principal Flute under Seiji Ozawa. As Principal Flute with the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and Acting Principal Flute with the Boston Pops, Ms. Gedigian has been heard on dozens of recordings and “Evening at Pops” television broadcasts, as well as the nationally broadcast Fourth of July specials. She has also been heard on several John Williams movie scores, including Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List.
Dr. Valentine has been official staff pianist for the William Kapell International Piano Competition, the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition, the Washington International Competition for Strings, and the National Flute Association National Convention. She has also served in that capacity for the Leonard Rose International Cello Competition, the Marian Anderson International Vocal Competition, and the Music Teachers National Association Competitions.
Their program will open with Johann Sebastian Bach’s Flute Sonata in G minor, BWV 1020, and then the four-movement Joueurs de Flûte, Op. 27, written by Albert Roussel in 1924.
Also to be heard are Four Lyric Pieces for Flute Alone from 1971 by American composer John Heiss and, dating from 1901, the Andante et Scherzo by French composer Louis Ganne.
Closing the program will be Austrian composer Franz Schubert’s Introduction and Variations on “Trockne Blumen” from 1824.
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.
