The next concert to be presented by Sunset Music | Arts will be an evening of virtuoso music for solo trumpet and piano. The soloist will be Ari Micich, who holds both a Master of Music degree and a Professional Studies Diploma from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he studied with Mark Inouye and Dave Burkhart. He has also performed with the Magik*Magik Orchestra and in the orchestra for several opera productions by Ensemble Parallèle. His accompanist for this program has not yet been announced.
As might be guessed, the repertoire for trumpet and piano is a bit limited. Micich has chosen to play an Andante-Allegro coupling by Guy Ropartz. a sonatina by Jean Françaix, and the second movement of a sonata by Eric Ewazen. He will also perform arrangements of Oscar Böhme’s concerto in F minor, Maurice Ravel’s “Pièce en forme de Habanera,’ and the third of Tomaso Albinoni’s Open 7 concertos, originally written for oboe. He will begin with the “Fanfare for St Edmundsbury,” which Benjamin Britten composed for three trumpets. Presumably, he will have recorded two of the parts and will play the remaining part against his recording.
This recital will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 23. Sunset Music | Arts program are hosted by the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, which is located at 1750 29th Avenue, about halfway between Moraga Street and Noriega Street.
