Cellist Arnone will be joined by pianist Lovelace in March 28 UI recital
Cellist Anthony Arnone from the University of Iowa School of Music and pianist Timothy Lovelace, who teaches at the University of Minnesota, will present a UI faculty/guest recital at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol on the UI Pentacrest.
Their performance will be free and open to the public.
Arnone and Lovelace are old friends who have performed together for several years, including UI campus recitals in 2004 and 2006. "I am thrilled to perform with Timothy Lovelace as he is a wonderful pianist," Arnone said. "The program has something for everyone to enjoy, with music from Italy, the United States, Argentina, Switzerland and Germany.
"We collaborated on a CD recording about four years ago, and the program will include one work -- Ernest Bloch's 'Meditation Hebraique' -- from our CD."
Other works on the program will be a sonata by Giuseppe Valnetini; "Capriccio" by William Bolcom; "Pampeana No. 2" by Alberto Ginastera; and the Sonata of Richard Strauss.
A founding member of the Meriden Trio and the Sedgwick String Quartet, Arnone was principal cellist of the Madison Symphony in Wisconsin, 1996-2001. He has taught and performed across the country, and joined the UI music faculty in 2001. For more information visit http://www.uiowa.edu/~music/bios/STRGarnone.htm.
