On four historic instruments in this New York university town, we explore a collection of cordial and creative contemporary compositions.
JANET M. CORRELL: Homage to Persichetti –David Enos (1855 Johnson/Westminster Presbyterian, Syracuse, NY)
DIANE WITUSZYNSKI-DEPTOLA: Fantasia on Picardy for Oboe and Organ –Anita Pawlak, oboe; David Enos (1950 Holtkamp/Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College, Syracuse, NY)
Filler –BRUCE LAZARUS: Meditation (see above)
Performers Will Headlee, David Enos and Katharine Pardee were recorded in Syracuse, New York, by Michael Barone in May 1995 in an unpublished recording from the Pipedreams Archive. Scores for all of this music, except for the works by Johnson, are available in The Syracuse Collection, published by Wayne Leupold Editions.
