PianoVoce tackles the theme of war

War is the theme for a recital by PianoVoce at the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Western European music does not dwell much on the subject of war, except for opera and musical theater.

However, there is a modest body of chamber music on the subject. PianoVoce, an ensemble of two pianists, two singers, and a narrator, has put together a recital of songs and piano duets, with some vivid and surprising results.

The pianists are former staff accompanists from Humboldt State University, Annette Gurn&

233;e Hull and Nancy Correll; soprano Sue Mullen and tenor Kevin Sharkey both studied vocal performance at HSU. The program will be narrated by Richard Duning, a Humboldt County artist. PianoVoce specializes in seldom-heard, intimate music for piano duet and for piano and voice.

This is one of the Petrof series of concerts presented by the Music Committee of the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. The concert is a benefit for the Music Fund of the Fellowship.

Composers include:

Music from the Germans

Schubert, Eisler

Music from the Americans

Barber, Menotti, Boyle

The recital of Piano Duets and Art Songs is Sunday, March 11, at, 4 p.m. at the Unitarian Center, 87 Fourth St., Ashland. Admission is free, with a suggested donation at the Door of $10.
