Klock to perform with faculty in concert

Lynn Klock, professor of saxophone in the Department of Music and Dance, will perform in concert on Thursday, April 14 at 8 p.m. in Bezanson Recital Hall. For the concert, Klock has selected an array of works that feature an eclectic mix of compositional styles and instrumental combinations.

Two world premieres will be on the program. Klock and professor Nadine Shank will premiere “Spiritual Fantasy No. 25,” for soprano saxophone and piano, by Amherst resident Frederick Tillis. Composer Hsueh-Yung Shen’s composition, written expressly for visiting assistant professor Eduardo Leandro, timpani, and Klock, tenor saxophone, will also receive its first performance at the recital.

Professor David Sporny will join Klock for music by David Jex. Elliott Carter’s “Fanfare” for four alto saxophones will be performed by Klock and his advanced students. Also on the program will be Takashi Yoshimatsu’s “Fuzzy Bird Sonata” and Claude Pascal’s “Sonatine.”
