A Musical Feast at the Burchfield Penney on The Buffalo News

Thursday, November 13, 2014

“A Musical Feast,” the free-wheeling Buffalo concert series masterminded by former Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Concertmaster Charles Haupt, is setting the table for a new course, to be served up at 8 p.m. Friday in the Burchfield Penney Art Center (1300 Elmwood Ave.).

One major offering is the Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-flat, Op. 12, No. 3, written in 1798 by Ludwig van Beethoven. It will be performed by violinist David Colwell and pianist Dmitri Novgorodsky. They also will team up for “Mythes,” Op. 30, written in 1915 by Karol Szymanowski.

Music on the newer side also is on the program. Tom Kolor is soloing on vibraphone and drums for a piece by Francois-Bernard Mache, a composer born in 1935. Alto saxophonists Wildy Zumwalt and Diane Hunger collaborate on a variety of contemporary pieces by Charles Terranova, Everette Minchew and Michael Lanci. Zumwalt and Hunger call their duo “klang par2.” “Klang” is German for sound, “partout” is French for “everywhere.”
