Benjamin Kulp, cello, and William Ogmundson, piano
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm EST
UVMC’s Benjamin Kulp and William Ogmundson take listeners on an emotional journey through pieces that they have returned to again and again in their musical lives, discovering new aspects at different stages of their performing careers. Kodaly’s Sonata for Solo Cello transforms a Hungarian folk lament into an expansive emotional landscape. Gottschalk similarly transforms an Andalusian folk song into a Liszt-style virtuoso piano piece, and Debussy’s impressionist masterpiece sparkles. The program concludes with an arrangement of Metallica’s heavy metal power ballad, paralleling Kodaly with complex rhythms, alternate tunings, and a devil-may-care attitude.
