Laudie Porter Concert II: Martha Jamsa, flute

Flute faculty Martha Jamsa, joined by her flute students Sarah Besse, Ainsley Land and Britta Swedenborg, and accompanied by piano faculty Nicola Melville, brings modern flute classics to the Carleton stage in this adventurous recital. Anchored by the quintessentially American Sonata for Flute by Robert Muczynski, the program explores contrasts in the “American” sound in the virtuosic Sonata by the Eastman School of Music’s Verne Reynolds, a piece written for Ms. Jamsa’s teacher at Indiana University. The beautiful Au-dela du temps (Transcending Time) for two flutes and piano, written in 2002 by the in-demand Japanese composer Yuko Uebayashi, will receive its Minnesota premiere, and includes flute student Ainsley Land. Ms. Jamsa and her brilliant flute students will wrap up the recital with the delightful Flute Quartet by Pierre-Max Dubois of the Paris Conservatory.
