Belle and Lynum Jackson winner to perform final recital

Saxophonist Jordan Carinelli and pianist Dr. Henning Vauth will present the Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition Winner’s Recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 17, in Smith Recital Hall on Marshall’s Huntington campus.

Featured on the program will be works by Ingolf Dahl, Lars-Erik Larsson and Jacques Ibert.

Carinelli, a senior pursuing degrees in both saxophone performance and music education, said he will continue his education at Ohio University in the fall, where he will pursue a master’s degree in multiple woodwind pedagogy as a graduate assistant.

In addition to being named the winner of this year’s Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition, Carinelli received the Paul A. Balshaw Award in the 2014 Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition and was selected to perform Fernande Decruck’s Sonata in C# Minor with the Marshall University Symphony Orchestra in the 2014 Soloist Competition.

This will be Carinelli’s final recital at Marshall.

Vauth is the director of keyboard studies at Marshall University.

The recital is presented for winning the 2016 Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition, the most prestigious music competition at Marshall. The three concertos featured on the recital were written for saxophone virtuoso Siqurd Rascher.  Rascher’s 50-year performance career resulted in more than 150 original works written for the saxophone. Many of these pieces, including those to be performed on the recital, showcased his control of the altissimo register of the saxophone and the virtuosity for which he was known.

The program begins with Ibert’s Concertino da camera, which is one of the most widely played concertos written for the saxophone, followed by Larsson’s Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra. Finally, after a brief intermission, the program will conclude with Dahl’sConcerto for Alto Saxophone, a staple of the saxophone’s concerto repertoire.

The program is free and open to the public. Call 304-696-3117 for more information.
