Music From The Palouse

A Palouse landscape with Mozart Sonata sheet music Music from the Palouse: Mozart!
Tuesday, Nov. 12 | 7:30 p.m.

The Auditorium Chamber Music Series presents “Music from the Palouse” on Tuesday, November 12 at 7:30 pm at the University of Idaho Auditorium. The concert showcases the enormous musical talent in our region. Participants include the Palouse Choral Society Chamber Choir, members of the Washington Idaho and Walla Walla Symphonies, and faculty from the University of Idaho and Washington State University.

This year’s “Music from the Palouse” concert is devoted to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: his Serenade for 8 Winds in C Minor, the Quartet for flute and strings in D Major, arias from two of his operas, and the Missa brevis K. 194 for chamber choir and strings.

A special feature of the concert—a tribute to Mozart rather than a piece by him—is Janissary K 310, composed by Hampton School of Music faculty member Dan Bukvich for this concert. The work for winds and percussion plays on the sound of the Janissary bands of the Ottoman Empire. Those sounds were the “street music” of Vienna during the time Mozart lived there, and he incorporated them into several of his own works. Mozart’s Piano Sonata K.310, the “Rondo alla turca,” is one of the best known works in this style.
