Faculty Artists: Lee Joiner & Friends

The Wheaton College Conservatory of Music presents a concert entitled “Instrumental Inspiration: Anton, Benny, and Javier”, performed by faculty artists Lee Joiner, Trevor O’Riordan, Brian Torosian, Michael Messer, Lilian Chou, Paul Zafer and Diane Chou. Clarinetists Anton Stadler and Benny Goodman along with the sounds of the guitar as conceived by guitarist Javier Farías are the inspiration behind the works on this program. Bartók’s Contrasts, commissioned by Hungarian violinist Joseph Szigeti and jazz clarinetist turned classical interpreter Benny Goodman is a tour-de-force of virtuosity imbued with the spirit of Hungarian folk music. Andean Suite (2016) by Javier Farías, features distinctive sounds of the guitar and strings in music from various regions of the Andes mountains. Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, inspired by Anton Stadler, is one of the pristine gems of the chamber repertoire.
