The SUNY Fredonia School of Music presents a faculty recital featuring cellist Natasha Farny on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 29 at 4 p.m. in Rosch Recital Hall on the SUNY Fredonia campus.

The September 15 performance of Early 20th-Century Parisian Chamber Music includes guest pianists William Wolfram and Gary Hammond, along with the Fredonia string faculty member David Colwell (violin) and David Rose (viola). The concert will include Debussy's Petite Suite for four-hand piano, Poulenc's Cello Sonata and the Faure Piano Quartet in C minor. There is no charge for this event.

On Saturday, September 29 at 4pm, the School of Music presents "Lady of Boston: Songs of Margaret Ruthven Lang," featuring The Fredonia Chamber Singers under the direction of Assistant Conductor Patrick Rose, tenor Donald George and pianist Lucy Mauro performing the songs of the late Romantic Boston composer Margaret Lang. The great grand-niece of Ms. Lang, Natasha Farny, will assist on the cello.

American cellist Natasha Farny has a versatile career as soloist and chamber musician. Her playing has been described as “technically quite impressive,” imbued with “eloquence” (Sunday Post-Journal) and replete with “long lines of beauty and strength” (Buffalo News). A passionate performer, she has appeared as soloist with several orchestras including the Boston Symphony, the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Abilene Philharmonic, and the Greeley Symphony Orchestra, as well as regional orchestras in Fredonia and Orchard Park, NY and Erie, PA.

American pianist William Wolfram was a silver medalist at both the William Kapell and the Naumburg International Piano Competitions, a bronze medalist at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow and finalist in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.

Pianist Gary Hammond has been praised in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America as a recitalist and chamber musician of the first rank. The New York Times has described his playing as “eloquent-a strong feeling of musical expression and intelligent thought”.
