Synopsis

Album Description
DDD. This recording is made possible with public funds from The New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency. Douglas Worthen studied at Hartt and L'Institut de Hautes Études Musicales in Montreux, Switzerland. He toured and recorded with the pop artist Leo Ferré and pursued a performing career based in Zurich. Upon his return to the USA, he became a proponent of the baroque flute, performing with the Quantz Baroque Trio, Boston Baroque and the Handel and Haydn Society under the direction of Christopher Hogwood, with whom he recorded for Decca L'Oiseau Lyre. Mr. Worthen teaches at the New England Conservatory and Manchester Music School and freelances in the Boston area. Janice Weber made her orchestral debut at the age of 12 in New York's Town Hall and graduated from Eastman. She is on the faculty of the Boston Conservatory. Richard Shaughnessy, principal clarinetist of the Nashua Symphony, has performed with the Portland Symphony and Boston Lyric Opera. Richard Menual is a member of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Boston Ballet Orchestra, and Handel and Haydn Society. Sigfrid Karg-Elert (1877-1933, Germany) set out on his own at sixteen and found work playing oboe, clarinet and horn. Later, in Leipzig, Siegfried earned a living as an orchestral musician and bar pianist. He dressed up with a fake beard and wig in order to remain incognito, since he was studying at the Leipzig Conservatory, and performing dance music was not approved. In 1902, at the recommendation of the Leipzig Conservatory, he took the position of piano masterclass instructor at the conservatory at Magdeburg, contingent on the director's stipulation that Karg alter his last name to "Karg-Elert" (adding his mother's maiden name). At Grieg's recommendation, Karg-Elert again changed his name, this time to "Sigfrid." (See unabridged notes with CD.)
