Abstract

Natalie Neshyba presented a graduate flute recital on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 6:00 pm in Davis Hall of the Gallagher‐Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa. This recital was given in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Master of Music degree in flute performance. Dr. Polina Khatsko, pianist, performed alongside Ms. Neshyba on two selections. The program began with an unaccompanied work, Les Folies d’Espagne, by Marin Marais. Next on the program was Claude Debussy’s Sonata in G minor L140 for flute and piano, which was recently transcribed from the original violin version by Dr. Claudia Anderson and SoYoung Lee. The second half of the recital opened with two movements of André Jolivet’s powerful solo flute work Cinq Incantations. To close the recital, Ms. Neshyba and Dr. Khatsko performed the two‐movement Sonata for Flute and Piano Op. 23, composed by Lowell Liebermann, offering a dynamic and dramatic finish. This program showcased a variety of challenging repertoire requiring solid technical facility, contrasting tone color, and knowledge of appropriate style representative of a graduate level recital.
