WCMS Concert with Dan Teager

This Sunday I have the pleasure of playing a short recital with fellow WCMS faculty member and jazz trumpeter Dan Teager. We’ll be exploring solo and duet music for trumpet and horn. Highlights include the music of Bozza, Persichetti, and some of Dan’s original music. Jazz, classical… there will be something for everyone! Hope to see you there.

Hedgehog Summer in a Nutshell!

Here’s a taste of Red Hedgehog Trio’s summer adventures.

Late summer greetings from your doting horn trio!

We wanted to share a quick update about what we’ve been up to this summer.

This June, we spent a wonderful two weeks in Saranac, NY, as guests of Hill and Hollow Music. We were fed, entertained, and housed like royalty; we got to hunker down and rehearse daily with a beautiful concert grand piano in a magical space with the perfect acoustic for our ensemble, and then perform there; we were taken on hikes and swims and provided firewood for a solstice fire in our very own fire pit.

As soloist, duo, and then full-on horn trio, we rehearsed and performed Bach’s First Partita in B-flat, Brahms’ Sonata for Piano and Violin in A Major, Op. 100, John Harbison’s Twilight Music, and our 10X10 set. Here is a wonderful, in-depth article about our ensemble and our concert program by Ben Pomerance…

WCMS Recital Rescheduled – Apr. 9th

Spring is just around the corner, and so is my rescheduled recital! I’m grateful that we were able to find an alternate date – no small feat given busy musicians’ time constraints, and the full schedule of performances at WCMS.

Looking forward to sharing the stage with my wonderful colleagues and bringing these pieces to life!

Recital Cancelled

Feb. 9th Storm ImpactMy recital tomorrow has been cancelled, courtesy of the cruel weather gods of New England. As the helpful map above indicates, the Greater Boston area is about to get hammered with yet another snowstorm. That’s 3 in 3 weeks, in case you’ve been counting – third time’s the charm? Hopefully we can find a date to reschedule – I’ll keep you posted. You can read more about the storm here.

Stay safe and warm, everyone!

Call of the Wild – WCMS Faculty Recital

Call of the WildA fundamental element of my instrument is its deep connection to nature. Please join me and my wonderful colleagues on a musical exploration of the woods and streams of Europe from 1828 through the early 20th century. Repertoire includes: La Chasse de St. Hubert by Busser, Schubert’s Auf dem Strom, Im Tiefsten Walde by Schmid, and Brahms’ Trio for Horn, Violin, and Piano. Hope to see you there!

Hedgehogs, anyone?

Hedgehog

Pretty appealing, right? I’m thrilled to tell you about my latest project in collaboration with my dear friends Marji and Dan – the Red Hedgehog Trio. We’ve been playing together for a while now, but this season we’re pursuing a bunch of initiatives including concerts, educational performances, new music, and more. Stay tuned for updates!
