On Saturday, September 2 at 1 PM, the Museum of Making Music hosts the Creative Arts Clarinet Trio for an hour-long musical journey of the history of wind music. The trio consists of three members of the Clarinet/Bass Clarinet section of the Coastal Communities Concert Band and their performance of this arrangement will be the first to the public.
The program opens with the familiar Allegro from Divertimento IV composed by W.A. Mozart, continuing with a transcription of recorder music from a Dutch composer in the early 1400s. The program also includes an English folk song (circa 1550), three short selections composed by J.S. Bach (circa 1685-1750), compositions from Anton Stadler (close friend of Mozart) and Ludwig Van Beethoven.
The audience also has the chance to see how wind music has evolved into more contemporary works with a tango by Isaac Albeniz, a jazz version of "Bach and Forth" composed by Pete Rugulo and "Blues Trio No. 1" composed by Bill Smith.
The Creative Arts Clarinet Trio consists of Dr. Charles Martyn, 1st chair; Ms. Judy Pisciotta, 2nd chair, and Doug McGee, 3rd chair. Ensembles from the Coastal Communities Concert Band perform free monthly concerts at the Museum through December.
Don't miss this chance to brush up on your music history while enjoying over 600 years of wind music. This concert is free, though a $5 suggested donation is appreciated. For more information call 760-438-5996. The Museum of Making Music is located at 5790 Armada Drive in Carlsbad.
