Abstract

On the evening of Friday, March 13th, 2015 at 6:00pm, Mara Miller performed a graduate recital in Davis Hall of the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa. This recital was presented in partial fulfilment of a Master of Music degree in flute performance. Collaborating on this presentation with Ms. Miller was faculty pianist, Polina Khatsko. The recital began with the virtuosic Tango Fantasie by Jacob Gade, followed by the more somber Sonata in A Minor for Solo Flute by C.P.E. Bach, and ended the first half of the recital with Sonatine pour flûte and piano by Pierre Sancan. After a brief intermission, the second portion of the program opened with the reverent Duo for Flute and Piano by Aaron Copland and climaxed with the vibrant sounds of Blowout by Timothy Hagen. With a variety of genres programmed for this recital, Ms. Miller was able to demonstrate the musical and stylistic knowledge gained while a student at this institution.
