THE NEW AMERICAN BASSOON
with Jooyeon Chang, piano
The sound of the bassoon is historically recognized as that of the ancient, the foolish, and often the tragic. With a new wave of music for this unique instrument, composers of diverse backgrounds are celebrating its possibilities as a painter of the contemplative, lush, resilient, and metallic. Join faculty artist Cayla Bellamy for a second collection of contemporary works by American composers, including depictions of indigenous societies, regional landscapes, and the agony and joy of universal troubles, and our tenacity to overcome them.
