Music Recital Sept. 9 at Smith Hall
"We are indeed lucky to have attracted a pianist of such formidable technique and wonderful musical insight," Dobbs said. "I'm delighted to have this opportunity to perform such extraordinary repertoire with him."
Dobbs is beginning his 29th year at Marshall and performs regularly as principal flute of the Huntington Symphony Orchestra and the Ohio Valley Symphony.
Vauth and Dobbs will begin the program with a virtuoso sonata by Conradin Kreutzer, a German 19th century composer and pianist. Kreutzer's Sonata is a showpiece, full of virtuoso cadenzas and delightful melodies. The duo will continue with Karl Reinecke's "Undine" Sonata, a programmatic work that musically describes Friedrich de la Motte Fouque's 1811 story of a mermaid who becomes human in order to marry with a man and obtain an immortal soul.
The second half of the program is devoted to Franz Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata. This tuneful and well-composed sonata is a favorite among cellists, since the arpeggione was a bowed, but fretted instrument about the size of the cello that enjoyed a brief vogue in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Dobbs tailors this version for flute after a 1970s interpretation by Jean-Pierre Rampal.
The program is free and open to the public. Call the School of Music and Theatre at 304-696-3117 for more information.
