The program features pieces of great emotional impact written for smaller ensembles, ranging from a brass quintet to a string orchestra with piano and trumpet soloists. The featured soloist is pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute (pronounced eee-YAY-vuh YO-koo-BA-va-shoot). Ms. Jokubaviciute is on the faculty at Duke University, having previously served on the faculty of the Shenandoah Conservatory in Virginia. She is also on the faculty at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music School and Festival in Blue Hill, Maine, and has established herself as a mentoring artist at the Marlboro Music Festival in Marlboro, Vermont.
Ms. Jokubaviciute and MSUM’s own Tom Strait are the soloists in Dmitri Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and Strings. Other pieces on the program include Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s Fratres (for strings and percussion); Martha Helen Schmidt’s Petite Prelude and Fugue for Brass Quintet; George Walker’s Lyric for Strings; Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll; and the Valse Triste of Jean Sibelius. Ms. Schmidt lives in Minneapolis, and is planning on attending the recording session.
