Free and open to the public. Refreshments served.
The Tarble, Coles County Arts Council, and the EIU Art Education program invite you to bring the whole family for a Saturday afternoon filled with art and music at the Tarble!
Students in the EIU Art Education program will lead an elementary-aged art activity in the Education Lab, while EIU music major and Tarble staff member Francis Morales performs a selection of music on the French horn in response to his conversations with Marie Bannerot McInerney about Falling into Milk in Commonspace. Bannerot McInerney will be on-site, working on phase 4 of her evolving site-specific installation.
Scarlet Waltz (James Naigus 1987-) The piece has an overall melancholy feel, with the horn playing a lush and soft melody before crescendoing to a more emotionally driven middle section before slowing down until the end. The piece is in 3/4, which gives the piece a waltz and dancelike feeling.
Morceau De Concert (Camille Saint-Saens 1835-1921) A three-movement piece originally for Solo Horn and Orchestra and later for Solo Horn and Piano, the section played is only the second movement. This movement is sustained and lyrical compared to the fast, rhythmic, and articulate first and third movements. The second movement also shows off the Horns' flexibility in the low register and a hand-stopping technique to have the Horn play in a different timbre.
Folk Songs for Horn and Piano: Movement 1 (Alegria) Movement 7 (Shenandoah) (Paul Basler 1963-)
