If you've been to a student recital before, you probably expect to hear something like a traditional concert by a touring artist.

Recitals by doctoral students are a somewhat different affair. In the course of completing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at New England Conservatory, performance majors present not just one, but three full-length recitals, for which they also write program notes. Composers present a recital of their chamber music, then complete a large-scale original work. In both cases, it's an opportunity to observe multiple facets of an emerging artist.

Pianist Yi-Wen Lai, student of Jonathan Feldman, and Cameron Stowe, presents an interesting program of collaborations.

The Program:

Yuko Uebayashi: Sonata for Flute and Piano
Johanna Gruskin, flute
Sergei Rachmaninoff: Six Songs, op. 38
Jennifer Caraluzzi, soprano
Karol Szymanowski: Mythes for Violin and Piano, op. 30
Mason Yu, violin

Date: April 18, 2014 - 8:30:PM
