A Dazzling Evening of Mozart, Poulenc, Honegger, Milhaud, and Coleridge Taylor Masterpieces at HBMS!

Hoff-Barthelson Music School is proud to present the second faculty concert in the HB Artist Series, a captivating evening of classical music that promises to enchant and inspire audiences. The concert will be held on Friday, October 27, 2023, at 7:30 pm in the School’s Joan Behrens Bergman Auditorium, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale, New York.

Featured faculty members are Laura Giannini, violin; Andrew Gonzalez, viola; April Johnson, violin; Dominic Meiman, piano; Joseph Piscitelli, flute; Peter Seidenberg, cello; and Daniel Spitzer, clarinet with guest artist Emily White, piano. The program includes:

  • Sonata for Flute and Piano by Francis Poulenc, a charming and witty work that blends neoclassicism and jazz elements in three contrasting movements.
  • Sonatine by Darius Milhaud, a lively and rhythmic piece for flute and piano that showcases the composer’s characteristic style of polytonality and jazz influences.
  • Danse de la Chèvre by Arthur Honegger, a solo flute piece that depicts the dance of a goat on a grassy hill after the winter snows have melted away.
  • Sonata in F Major, K. 332 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of the three sonatas that Mozart published in Vienna in 1784 as his Op. 6. It has three movements: an Allegro in sonata form, an Adagio in B major, and a lively Allegro assai in rondo form.
  • Clarinet Quintet in F-sharp minor, Op. 10 by Samuel Coleridge Taylor, a romantic and expressive work that features a dramatic opening theme, a lyrical slow movement, a playful scherzo, and a fugato finale.

Tickets are $20 general admission and free of charge to HBMS students. Tickets may be purchased in advance via Eventbrite, by visiting the School’s website (www.hbms.org), by calling 914-723-1169, or e-mailing hb@hbms.org. Program and artists subject to change.
