Trumpeter Amy Schendel will be joined by two of her University of Iowa School of Music faculty colleagues—pianist Rene Lecuona and organist Greg Hand—and pianist Jason Sifford in a free recital at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, in the Riverside Recital Hall.
Schendel and Lecuona will open the program with the Sonata for Trumpet and Piano by Iowa City native Wayne Lu, president and founder of the Veritas Musica Publishing Company in Eldora; and Hand will be featured in a performance of the Sonata for Trumpet in C and Organ by German composer Harald Genzmer, who was a student of Paul Hindemith.
With Sifford, Schendel will perform In Memoriam by contemporary American composer Joseph Turrin, L’esprit de la trompette by Chicago composer and trumpeter James M. Stephenson, and Turrin’s arrangement of George Gershwin’sSomeone to Watch Over Me.
