The Hortus Project - Musicians and the Great War
Tuesday, April 4, 8 pm
Schoenberg Hall

Ambroise Aubrun, lecturer of violin, with pianist Steven Vanhauwaert play music from World War I. Presented by chambermusic@ucla

Program:
Sonata in A Major (1915) Philippe Gaubert
Sonata Op. 43 (1919) Blair Fairchild
Sonata Op. 82 (1918) Edmont Elgar

This program is part of the Musicians and the Great War series, a recording project of the Hortus Editions (Paris). Between two works by renowned musicians, Gaubert—a great flutist, conductor and composer who has done so much for the repertoire of his instrument, and Elgar, who already enjoyed an international reputation during his lifetime, comes the world premiere recording of the Sonata Op. 43 by Blair Fairchild, an American composer established in Paris during the war. These three sonatas composed between 1915 and 1919 have in common a particular attention for melody, charm, and romance. This fall, we look forward to the release of an album of these sonatas for the Hortus Label, recorded in the Ostin Music Center’s recording studio at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. – Ambroise Aubrun and Steven Vanhauwaert

Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2016-2017 Dobrow Series.
