The Tuple Bassoon Duo, featuring bassoonists Lynn Hileman, of the WVU music faculty, and guest artist Rachael Elliott, will present a recital at the Creative Arts Center, Friday, Oct. 16, at 8:15 p.m. in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall (200A). The event is free and open to the public.

Hileman and Elliott formed Tuple in 2006 to expand the contemporary repertoire for bassoon duo.

Tuple’s virtuosic repertoire, which includes music by Dutch composers Louis Andriessen and Chiel Meijering, Russian Sofia Gubaidulina and American Michael Daughtery, spans a melodic, timbral and stylistic range of surprising breadth.

This season, they have premiered new music for two bassoons by Australian composer Padma Newsome, and have recently commissioned Canadian composer Tawnie Olson to write a new work for two bassoons and marimba to be premiered in 2010.

Tuple has toured throughout the eastern seaboard, appearing at The Stone in New York City, Eyedrum in Atlanta, Flood Gallery Fine Art Center’s Sonic Experience Series in Asheville, N.C., Catamount Arts Center in Vermont, A/V Space in Rochester, N.Y., and the Eastman School of Music.
