A fresh look at Bach and Shostakovich


PUTNEY -- Flutist Zara Lawler and marimbist Paul Fadoul, individually and as a duo heralded for their artistry as well as their creative approach to education, come to Putney to focus their energies on the Preludes and Fugues of Bach and Shostakovich, as part of Yellow Barn’s Artist Residencies program.

Shostakovich’s effort is, in itself, an act of supreme devotion to Bach, and together with pianist and Yellow Barn faculty member Christina Dahl, The Fadoul/Lawler Duo furthers that tradition of devotion through transcription while enriching the literature for their ensemble with these celebrated works.

The week will culminate with a public performance of this duo at the United Church of Putney on Monday, Oct. 11, at 7 p.m. Following the performance, audience members are invited to meet the artists at a reception on the Tavern Lawn.

Admission is $12, and all proceeds benefit Yellow Barn’s fully-subsidized Artist Residencies. To reserve tickets, contact Willow Cohen, development and marketing manager, at 802-387-6637 or willow@yellowbarn.org.

Fadoul/Lawler Duo marks the second in a series of Artist Residencies hosted by Yellow Barn. Upcoming residencies include Eight Songs for a Mad King in November and the Jupiter Quartet in April and May, 2011. For a full schedule of residency events, visit www.yellowbarn.org.

Yellow Barn presents the Artist Residencies in partnership with The Greenwood School. Throughout the 2010-2011 academic year Greenwood students and faculty explore ideas inspired by Yellow Barn’s residencies and intrinsically connected to the Greenwood School’s overarching curriculum.
