Frisof/Pesca Duo: Beauty Crying Forth
April 17 at 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The Frisof/Pesca Duo, featuring flutist Sarah Frisof and pianist Daniel Pesca, present Beauty Crying Forth: Flute Music by Women Across Time, featuring repertoire spanning one and half centuries for flute by female composers, including music by Clara Schumann, Lili Boulanger, Tania León, Shulamit Ran, and Amy Williams. Frisof and Pesca will chart two parallel lineages: the evolution of flute repertoire from the Romantic era to the current day, and the overlooked role of female composers in shaping that repertoire.
Sarah Frisof and pianist/composer Daniel Pesca (assistant professor at UMBC) have a twelve-year duo partnership. Together, Pesca and Frisof have performed over forty recitals, at venues such as the Interlochen Center for the Arts, the Arts Club of Washington, and universities, conservatories, and conferences across the country. Their recording of the music of Joseph Schwantner was released on Centaur Records; their second CD, the subject of this concert — Beauty Crying Forth — was recently released on New Focus Recordings.
