Stillman, Wincenc in Wed. Chamber Music Series concert, April 13

Judith Lynn Stillman, RIC artist-in-residence and virtuoso pianist, will collaborate with master flutist Carol Wincenc in a Wednesday Chamber Music Series performance on April 13 at 1 p.m. in the Nazarian Center’s Sapinsley Hall.

The concert is part of the “Masterworks at Sapinsley” series. Titled “Classic Masterpieces,” the program will explore stylistic development and Viennese tradition. It includes sonatas by Mozart, Haydn and Schubert.

Carol Wincenc
“The Mozart is a miniature gem written by the composer when he was only eight years old, evidencing glimpses of genius,” Stillman said. “The Haydn is a remarkable transcription from a string quartet, and was, conversely, among the master's last instrumental works. The exquisite Schubert was also written toward the end of his life, and originally for the arpeggione, a unique six-stringed instrument developed in the 1820's.”

Wincenc and Stillman have performed in a number of venues together and both were educated at The Juilliard School. Wincenc was a First Prize winner of the Naumburg Competition and is on the Juilliard faculty.

Stillman, RIC’s artist-in-residence and a professor of music, was the winner of the first Pell Award in the Arts. She recently served as visiting artist-in-residence in China, where she gave concerts, master classes and chamber music workshops at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing.

The performance will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
