Piano, Clarinet Concert set at Angelo State University
Two members of the music faculty at Texas State University in San Marcos will present a piano and clarinet concert Monday, March 3, from 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. in the Carr EFA Recital Hall on the Angelo State University campus.
Russell Riepe, a pianist and composer, will perform his own works for the piano and clarinet with David Pino. They also will perform works by Claude Debussy, Alban Berg and Francis Poulenc.
Music on the program will be the “Premiere Rhapsodie” by Debussy, “Four Pieces” by Alban Berg, the “Sonata” by Poulenc and the “Lacrimosa” by Riepe.
Riepe is professor and coordinator of music composition programs and is founder and director of the Texas Mysterium for Modern Music ensemble at Texas State University. He has earned numerous accolades and has traveled as a lecturer and consultant in Japan and the Peoples Republic of China.
One of Riepe’s compositions for solo clarinet, “Three Studies on Flight,” has become a standard work in the international repertoire for the clarinet, said Dr. Stephen Emmons, Angelo State University assistant professor of music.
Pino is well-known for the clarinet and as a music teacher. He has recorded two albums for clarinet and piano on the Orion label with pianist Frances Mitchum Webb. Pino also wrote “The Clarinet and Clarinet Playing,” published by Dover.
