Faculty Recital Series: Dr. Joseph Kneer & Dr. Nathan Hess

Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 8:00pm
Walker Recital Hall

Join Mercyhurst music faculty Dr. Joseph Kneer (violin) and Dr. Nathan Hess (piano) on a tour through some of the most exciting and diverse duo and solo violin repertoire of the 20th century. Titled "That's So Last Century!," the program includes Prokofiev's brooding first violin sonata; the delightful "Suite in the Old Style" by Soviet-era pioneer Alfred Schnittke; the dramatic solo Violin Sonata No. 4 by Belgian virtuoso Eugene Ysaye’ a raucous, hymn-inflected sonata by Charles Ives; and an electrifying arrangement of Gershwin's "Three Preludes." This event is free and open to the public.
