Tessa Brinckman

8 pm Thursday, Feb. 7., Thursday February 07 | Free.
 
The accomplished and adventurous New Zealand-born flutist, who frequently used to play hereabouts, has spent the past few years performing in Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival. She often played the music of longtime OSF composer and her fellow Southern Oregon University prof Todd Barton, who’s also written for the Oregon Symphony, Kronos Quartet and many others. (Chances are, if you heard music at the festival, it was Barton’s.) Brinckman returns to play a solo program featuring five different flutes (including piccolo, the wooden Baroque traverso, alto, contrabass) and occasional electronic accompaniment. The program features Barton’s new Sonus Sonorus for traverso and electronics, inspired by a work by 18th-century French composer Jean-Marie Leclair; Brinckman’s own new HĂĽzĂĽn Nar (inspired by her travels in Istanbul and the work of famed Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk); music by Australian composer Ross Edwards; and American composers Shirish Korde and Alex Shapiro; plus Jennifer Higdon, one of today’s finest composers.
