Gema García Grijalva is Adjunct Instructor of Piano/Accompanist and I am Instructor of Clarinet at USD, and early in the 2018 Fall semester we formed Duo Lebhaft, playing music for clarinet and piano. Duo Lebhaft has been a joyful project and we are excited to share with you the very first performance. In the future, we plan to continue to perform more concerts and collaborate with chamber musicians around San Diego and beyond.
For our first concert, we chose repertoire that is familiar to us both, and that I taught this semster to my students- masterworks for clarinet and piano, plus a Bach treat arranged by a master pedagogue, Stanley Hasty.
Here's the program:
J.S. BACH/HASTY: Chromatic Fantasy
SAINT-SAËNS: Sonata for Clarinet and Piano
R. SCHUMANN: Fantasy Pieces
BRAHMS: Sonata in F minor, Op. 120 No. 1.
