For this program, works will include Hindemith's "Heckelphone" Trio, op. 47 for Piano, Tenor Saxophone, and Viola, a transcription of Max Bruch's Double Concerto for Alto Saxophone, Viola, and Piano, and a special arrangement of a work by Minnesota composer, Libby Larsen. The Irrelevants have performed throughout the United States, New Zealand and Italy in venues ranging from academic institutions and new music festivals to community chamber music series.

From 1987-99 he was president of Skidmore College, then taught at Williams (1999-2008) and Indiana University (2008) before returning to Skidmore last year as the Tisch Family Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts. He has given recitals and lecture-recitals throughout the United States, in Great Britain, and on radio and TV, including a number of performances of the Concord Sonata in recent years. Porter is the author of books on Horace and on Greek tragedy and of three monographs on Virginia Woolf and Bloomsbury, and editor, with Gunther Schuller and Clara Steuermann, of a book on pianist and Schoenberg colleague Edward Steuermann, with whom Porter studied 1955-62. His book On the Divide: the Many Lives of Willa Cather, was published in 2008 by the University of Nebraska Press, and a second book on Cather, co-authored with a colleague at Drew University, will appear in late 2009.

    • Playing "Chamber Music in Any Chamber," the Chiara Quartet expands the spaces for quartet music, reaching from the concert hall into clubs, bars, and galleries, but always returning chamber music to its roots. Described by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as "vastly talented, vastly resourceful, and vastly committed to the music of their time," the quartet is also continually searching for new meaning within the well-established quartet canon. Their style is best described as a nonstop journey along the edges of expressive possibility: "luminous," "searing," (New York Times) "soulful," "biting," and possessing a "potent collective force" (Strings Magazine).

    • Asteria - Sylvia Rhyne, soprano, Eric Redlinger, tenor and lute.

Largely drawn from anonymous compositions from the last decade of the 14th century and very beginning of the 15th, this body of work reflects the little-known era of “Dufay’s teachers”, and contains many of the elements that will later be the hallmarks of the mature Burgundian style that swept Europe during of the middle of the 15th century. Sylvia Rhyne is a 1978 music major graduate of Carleton. She was honored by her class for Distinguished Achievement at their 25th reunion.

  • Guest/Faculty Recital: Jeff Zeigler , Kronos Quartet cellist with Nicola Melville, piano
    • Brilliant Kronos Quartet cellist, Jeffrey Zeigler, is joined by Carleton faculty pianist, Nicola Melville, in a program of profound and appealing contemporary music. Alfred Schnittke’s intense masterwork, Sonata for Cello and Piano, is paired with Judd Greenstein’s rock-inspired work of the same title; the sparse transcendence of Arvo Pärt is juxtaposed with an exuberant pop-inspired piece by Doug Opel (world premiere) and the lush sonorities of Paola Prestini’s “Cut him out in little stars…” In addition to receiving the 2011 Avery Fisher Prize, the Kronos Quartet was recently awarded Sweden’s prestigious Polar Music Award in recognition of their broad approach to programming, often incorporating avant-garde rock and music from a variety of sources worldwide. This recital offers selections that echo this timely and thrilling aesthetic.
