Those who read my account of last Monday’s innovative approach to sonority for the second movement from Francis Poulenc’s clarinet sonata during the Clarinet Department Recital at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM) may wish to know that the same SFCM student will be performing that sonata in its entirety at the beginning of the coming week. The occasion will be the final Graduate Recital for that student, Jonathan Szin. For this performance he will be accompanied by pianist Miles Graber. Graber will also accompany his performance of Robert Muczynski’s Opus 43 suite entitled Time Pieces and an arrangement of the “Méditation” from Jules Massenet’s opera Thaïs. For the final work on the program, Szin and Graber will be joined by cellist Laura Gaynon for a performance of Johannes Brahms’ Opus 114 trio in A minor.
This recital will take place in the SFCM Recital Hall this coming Monday, March 31, at 8 p.m. Admission is free, and no tickets are required. SFCM is located at 50 Oak Street, a short walk from the Van Ness Muni station.
