I recently heard Jennifer Higdon’s Oboe Concerto and I think it’s a great new work. I received an email today, requestingI post information about an upcoming performance of the work, along with a master class. I’m more than happy to post this announcement!:

Masterworks 4 Performance
Saturday, April 21, 2007 at 8:00pm

George Mason University (Fairfax VA)
Center for the Arts

“One of the world’s finest wind players” is William Hudson’s judgment of oboist John Ferrillo – and Maestro Hudson is in a fine position to know, since Mr. Ferrillo, now principal of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, is also a former member of the Fairfax Symphony!

He will bring us not only Bach’s Concerto for Oboe and Violin, BWV 1060 (with FSO Concertmaster David Salness) but also the local premiere of the startlingly beautiful new Oboe Concerto by one of today’s trend-setting composers, Jennifer Higdon.

John Ferrillo will also present an Oboe Master Class from 10:00am-12:00pm at George Mason University’s Performing Arts Building (Room 323)

Visit www.fairfaxsymphony.org for more information.

I hope some readers can make it to one or both of these events. (If you do, email me later and let me know about your experience!)
