The Sinfonietta’s second concert of the fall semester features percussion music by Luciano Berio, Salvatore Sciarrino, Giacinto Scelsi and Franco Donatoni.
“Circles,” Berio’s composition for female voice, harp and two percussionists, features UB faculty members Tiffany Du Mouchelle, soprano, and Tom Kolor, percussion, as well as Canadian harpist Kristen Theriault and percussionist Stephen Solook.
Kolor will also be performing Dontoni’s “Mari I” for solo marimba, and will be joined by UB colleague John Bacon, and Solook and Tomek Arnold for Sciarrino’s “Un Fruscio Lundo Trent’Anni” for four percussionists.
