Event Details

Southern Notebook. MIT Wind Ensemble. Frederick Harris, Jr., Music Director, Kenneth Amis, Assistant Conductor. World Premiere of Southern Notebook for piano and symphonic winds by MIT Senior Lecturer Charles Shadle. Anirudh Arun ’13, piano;  Dvořák, trans. Amis, Slavonic Dance No. 1, op. 72;  Schmidt, Hommage à Stravinsky;  Ito, Gloriosa: Symphonic Poem for Winds; Brahms, trans. Boyd, Chorale Preludes nos. 7 & 8.  8pm, Kresge Auditorium. Free in advance; $5 cash at the door.  

Southern Notebook is designed to celebrate the contributions of pianist and MIT senior Anirudh Arun to the MIT Wind Ensemble. Though the piano plays a prominent role, Southern Notebook is not a traditional concerto, but rather a cycle of eight short, interrelated character pieces. The movements, entitled “Cypress”, “Porch”, “Birmingham”, “Mountain Music, “Rag”, “Whirligig”, “Reprise” and “Invitation” are musical responses to images and experiences gleaned from a lifetime of travel in the American South.
