August 31, 2018
Bassoonist Jefferson Campbell and his colleague from the University of Minnesota-Duluth, percussionist/composer Gene Koshinski, will present a guest recital called “21st-Century Bassoon: Music That’s Fun to Play” on Wednesday, September 5, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Roxy Grove Hall. Dr. Campbell is Assistant Professor of Bassoon and Music History at UMD, where Dr. Koshinski is Professor of Percussion. Also performing at the Baylor recital will be pianist Alexander Kostadinov, who earned his Master of Music and Bachelor of Music degrees at the Waco campus.
Over the last several years, Jefferson Campbell has distinguished himself as a solo, chamber, and orchestral musician. He has appeared as soloist in North Carolina, Kentucky, Nebraska, New York, and in a tour of Germany. Dr. Campbell’s academic research interests lie in the area of music for film. He is an advocate of film music and raising audience awareness of its importance as an element of film and for its own artistic merit.
Gene Koshinski is currently principal percussionist for the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. He has performed in Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Jordan, Slovenia, the UK, Canada, and throughout the United States, and his compositions are frequently commissioned by leading artists and performing ensembles.
The program will open with the three-movement Concertino for Bassoon and Electronics by Jess Hendricks and then Four Onomatopoeias for Bassoon and Piano by Graham Shields.
Also to be heard are Steamboat Lullaby by Bruce Grainger and Truman Bullard, the four-movement Pocket Grooves by Dr. Koshinski, and Dr. Campbell’s own arrangement of “Send in the Clowns” from A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim.
