Eunsuk Jung and her recital colleagues

It’s been a long, hot summer, but Arts Knoxville‘s involuntary hiatus is now—thankfully—at an end. The University of Tennessee is back in session and the UT School of Music’s recital programs are warming up in the wings.

First up next Monday is faculty pianist Eunsuk Jung and a number of colleagues in a pair of significant works. Opening the recital will be 19th Century Russian composer Mikhail Glinka’s Trio Pathétique in D minor. The work, scored for piano, clarinet, and bassoon, was composed in 1832 and premiered in Milan with the composer on the piano. In Monday’s UT performance, Jung will be joined by clarinetist Victor Chavez and bassoonist Aaron Apaza.

The remainder of the program is devoted to Franz Schubert’s “Trout Quintet”, the Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667. The performers are Ilia Steinschneider, violin; Eunsoon Corliss, viola; Stacy Miller, cello; Daniel Thompson, double bass; with pianist Jung.

The Monday recital (August 29) is at 6 p.m. in the Sandra G. Powell Recital Hall in UT’s Natalie L. Haslam Music Center. Admission is FREE—as are most all of UT’s faculty and guest artist recitals.
