The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Music Department is presenting Respighi’s Boutique, featuring acclaimed Euclid Quartet first violinist Jameson Cooper and UW Oshkosh pianist Eli Kalman, in a performance Friday, Oct. 28.
The recital will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the UW Oshkosh Music Hall inside the Arts and Communication Building, 1001 Elmwood Ave., Oshkosh. Admission is free.
Cooper, an English-born performer from Indiana University at South Bend, Ind., is the first violinist of the acclaimed Euclid Quartet. He is described as a “fantastic and refined performer of all genres” as shown in his recent Prokofiev Sonatas CD or complete Bela Bartok string quartets or complete Bela Bartok string quartets and Quartets Nos. 1-4 by Hugo Kauder with the Euclid Quartet.
During his short visit, he will interact with UW Oshkosh student violinists and perform a recital sponsored by the University’s Music Department.
Cooper will partner in performance with UW Oshkosh pianist Kalman in a musical journey for violin and piano from Mozart to Respighi, including the earlier of Respighi’s sonatas dated 1897 (published in its world premier edition by Kalman in 2011) as well as Schumann’s first Sonata for violin and piano and Respighi’s magnificent masterpiece, the unique Sonata in B minor dated 1917.
