Friedheim Memorial Lecture/Recital Audible Processes: Minimalism and Beyond

Back by popular demand, the Friedheim Memorial Lecture and Recital Series will return to Binghamton University. Prof. Philip Friedheim (1930 - 1986) began the series over thirty years ago to the University students, faculty and the local community. A colleague, Prof. Harry Lincoln, wrote "He participated in a remarkable series of lecture-recitals with his friend Walter Ponce. Phil's erudition and brief demonstrations at the pianos were matched by Walter's brilliant performances." This series always drew a large crowd and we are hoping to continue the tradition. Join us for the third and final Friedheim Lecture/Recital this season as the Binghamton University Music Department presents "Audible Processes: Minimalism and Beyond" on Tuesday, April 28th at 8:00 p.m. in Casadesus Recital Hall at Binghamton University. Minimalism, the most popular and influential trend in classical music of the last 50 years, combines the adventurous spirit of modernism with the clarity and immediate appeal of popular music. Binghamton University musicologist Paul Schleuse introduces major works by minimalist and post-minimalist composers Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt, and John Adams, with performances by Binghamton faculty members Timothy Perry, Margaret Reitz, Janey Choi, Michael Salmirs, and Ewa Mackiewicz-Wolfe. Tickets for the concert are $5 and it is recommended that you purchase tickets in advance. Tickets are available at the Anderson Center Box Office from noon to 5:30 p.m. weekdays, by calling (607) 777-ARTS, online at http://anderson.binghamton.edu, or at the door.
