Old Songs in a New World: Folk-inspired Music for Two Pianists. November 25, 2018

Folk music, the traditional music of a people or country, has for centuries inspired composers with its rhythms, melodies and textures. In a program of duets and solo music as well as a work for two pianos, Katherine Dowling and Clark Schaufele took their audience on a wonderful journey from Andalusia to Oslo to Bali. Music by Brahms, de Falla, Tveitt, Dvorak and othersdrew on rich ethnic traditions and time-honoured songs reflective of universal human experience. Dr. Dowling and Dr. Schaufele are currently engaged at the University of Regina and at the University of Regina Conservatory of the Performing Arts respectively.
