On the momentous occasion of Philip Glass’s 80th birthday on January 31, 2017, long-time friend and collaborator UNL’s Marguerite Scribante Professor of Music Paul Barnes will offer a musical celebration for the UNL and Lincoln community. Collaborating with his UNL colleagues Julie Yoon, John Bailey, Hans Sturm and Mark Clinton, Barnes will offer several Nebraska premieres of works by Glass never performed in Kimball Recital Hall. These include Barnes’ new edition of Glass’s piano solo Dreaming Awake (2007), the unpublished Pendulum for Violin and Piano with Julie Yoon, Barnes’ energetic and athletic transcription of “The Vision,” and a new version of “Sacagawea” for flute, bass, and piano with John Bailey and Hans Sturm. The recital will conclude with Glass’s energetic score Four Movements for Two Pianos with Barnes’ colleague in the piano area Mark Clinton.

Praised by the New York Times for his “Lisztian thunder and deft fluidity,” and the San Francisco Chronicle as “ferociously virtuosic,” pianist Paul Barnes has electrified audiences with his intensely expressive playing and cutting-edge programming. He has been featured four times on APM’s Performance Today, on the cover of Clavier Magazine, and his recordings are broadcast worldwide.

Free and open to the public.
