A bassoon recital featuring Lynn Hileman of the West Virginia University music faculty at the Creative Arts Center, Saturday, Oct. 22, will feature both old and new music for this amazing instrument.

The concert begins at 8:15 p.m. in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall (200A) and is free and open to the public.

The program includes Phillip Friedrich B�ddecker’s “Sonata Sopra La Monica,” one of the oldest pieces written for bassoon, featuring music faculty member Jack Crotty, harpsichord; “Sonata for bassoon and piano,” by Camille Saint-Saens, with pianist Marina Schmid; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Adagio K. 261” and “Rondo K. 373,” two pieces originally for violin and orchestra, with Schmid on piano; and Alex Kotch’s “Techo Music for Bassoon and Electronica” (2011), an amplified work played against an electronica background.

Hileman is assistant professor of bassoon and music theory, co-director of the WVU Double Reed Ensemble, and a member of the Laureate Wind Quintet. She is dedicated to the reinvigoration of concert music through performance of post-classical contemporary and experimental music, orchestral and chamber music, as well as electronic music and interdisciplinary arts. She is principal bassoonist of the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra in Binghamton, N.Y., and has also performed with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and the Syracuse and New Haven Symphony Orchestras, New Music New Haven, the June in Buffalo festival, and Eastman Musica Nova. She holds degrees from the University of Michigan, Yale University, and the Eastman School of Music, where she was the 2004 winner of the Andrew G. Bogiages Memorial Prize in Bassoon.
