The flute and piano duo of Jan Vinci and Barbara Lee will present Handel, Messiaen, Poulenc and others on Monday, April 19, 2010, at the Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, NY. This fifth concert in 2009-2010 season of the deBlasiis Chamber Music Series will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Hyde Collection’s Helen Froehlich Auditorium.
On the program for Monday evening are sonatas by Handel and Schulhoff, Messiaen’s Le Merle Noir, the Dohnanyi Aria, Intermezzo by Francis Poulenc and the Widor Suite for Flute and Piano. Also included will be the first complete performance of Fantasies on Celtic Airs by local composer Jan Bullard.
Flutist Jan Vinci holds the DMA degree from the Julliard school, as well as degrees from the Cleveland Institute and Bowling Green State University. She is currently Senior Artist-in-Residence at Skidmore College. Barbara Lee is a much-in-demand, skilled and sensitive pianist who has performed throughout the U.S. in recital and as a master class accompanist; she performs not only classical but also jazz and South American music. Their appearance together is a much anticipated highlight of this the 77th season of the deBlasiis concert series.
