Pastiche Chamber Ensemble in Guest Concert

September 16, 2015
Pastiche Chamber Ensemble, a touring quartet from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, will present a guest concert at Baylor University on Tuesday, September 29, beginning at 3:30 p.m. in Meadows Recital Hall, located within the Glennis McCrary Music Building. Members of the group are clarinetist Jan F. Scott, trumpeter David Scott, pianist Noriko Tsuchiya, and percussionist Thomas Blomster.
Since its inception in 1995, Pastiche Chamber Ensemble has been acclaimed by professional musicians and audiences alike for its talent and polish, as well as for its intriguingly passionate programming. Pastiche has recorded with the Innova and Centaur labels. Four virtuoso artists make up this whimsical quartet, and each member has been associated with prominent performing ensembles, venues, and musical institutions.
Their program will open with the first movement, “Allegro rigoroso,” from Music for a Farce, composed in 1938 by Paul Bowles. Also to be heard is the three-movement A Brief Encounter from 1975 by William Billingsley.
Pastiche Chamber Ensemble is actively involved in expanding the repertoire through their transcriptions and commissioning of new works, and this concert offers five such works: the first movement, “Allegro,” of Sonata from 1997 by Keith Gates; the second movement, “Leaf Fall,” from The Seasons from 2014 by William G. Rose; Woodwork from 1999 by Arthur Frackenpohl; The Gilded Age from 2014 by Christopher Cook; and Partly Sunny from 1998 by Douglass Minerd.
This concert is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
