Brian King's Freshman Recital

Brian King's Freshman Recital

Oberlin Freshman, Brian King, gave his first full recital there on May 9. He presented it in our beautiful Stull Recital Hall to a full audience. He programmed works by Bach, Giuliani, Bogdanovic, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and included an original work. The Tedesco was the terrific duet "Sonata Canonica," for which he was joined by Rebecca Klein. The performance went off perfectly, with moments both thrilling and sublime. Bravo, Brian!!

Here are some images from the performance:
