Spring Jazz Series: New Works for Flute and Piano

Commissioning Project & Recital Tour

We are delighted to present the premieres of four dazzling new works for flute and piano by composers Gabriel Bolaños, David Clay Mettens, Ashkan Behzadi, and New Haven's own Katherine Balch. Come hear the flute and piano as you've never heard them before: kaleidoscopic colors and rich timbres unfold in a flurry of sound and resonance—in four brand-new, world premiere works. 

This evening's program weaves together these four new works with repertoire both old and new, including Jonathan Harvey's thrilling "Run Before Lightning," Frank Martin's iconic "Ballade" for flute and piano, and virtuosic solo works by Zach Sheets and Robert Morris. 

Suggested donation at door: $15 adults, $5 students

This project is generously funded by New Music USA, the Eastman School of Music Professional Development Committee, and the Tallon Perkes Scholarship Fund.
