(MUFREESBORO)—Sarah Cote, faculty member and instructor of viola at MTSU, will perform a faculty recital at 3p.m. Oct. 29 in the T. Earl Hinton Music Hall of the Wright Music Building on the MTSU campus.
Cote will present Hindemith’s Sonata Op. 25 nr.1 for solo viola and Shostakovich’s Sonata.
Caleb Harris, an assistant professor of music and collaborative pianist, will join Cote on Shostakovich’s work.
“I chose these pieces because both composers gave a lot of thought to the role of the artist in society,” Cote said. “Hindemith, because he lived in Nazi Germany, and Shostakovich, because he lived in Stalinist Russia.
“Both pieces are very expressive of the composer’s feelings about the human condition,” she added.
The Oct. 29 concert is free and open to the public.
