Annual concert presents winning student ensembles

The Yale School of Music presents the winners of its annual chamber music competition in a concert on the Oneppo Chamber Music Series on Tuesday, May 1. This year’s concert presents a diverse selection of music from Johannes Brahms to John Cage, featuring strings, winds, piano, and percussion. The concert begins at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall.

The concert will open with Cage’s Third Construction, written in 1941 for a vast variety of Western and international instruments as well as everyday items like tin cans and a conch shell. This performance will feature the quartet of Jonny Allen, Victor Caccese, Michael Compitello, and Cristobal Gajardo.

Next on the program is the thirteen-minute Trio for clarinet, viola, and piano by Australian composer Roger Smalley, performed by Ashley Smith, clarinet; Leonard Chiang, viola; and Naomi Woo, piano.

The second half of the concert will open with Richard Strauss’s lively Till Eulenspiegel, in a chamber arrangement by Franz Hasenohrl. The performers are Igal Levin, clarinet; Cordelia Paw, violin; Yuki Katayama, bassoon; Ian Petruzzi, horn; and Matthew Rosenthal, bass.

The evening will close with the Brahms Piano Trio in C major, Op. 87, performed by Victor Fournelle-Blaine, violin; Haeyoon Shin, cello; and Charles Richard-Hamelin, piano.

In announcing the results of the competition, which was open to all Yale School of Music ensembles, faculy member Wendy Sharp noted that the judges “were impressed with the high level of seriousness, preparation, and musicianship.”
