John Rommereim and Claudia Anderson Present: Homelands
Flutist Claudia Anderson and composer/pianist John Rommereim present Homelands, a concert of recent works for flute and piano. The performance includes the premieres of two works by John Rommereim, as well as interviews with two composer/flutists, Ian Clarke and Allison Loggins-Hull. The concert concludes with Aaron Copland’s beloved work, “Duo.” Anderson and Rommereim are musical friends who have combined forces on numerous projects, both as composers and as performers. Anderson has performed Rommereim’s works at two conventions of the National Flute Association, and the two have collaborated to create several original musical works. The flutist is known for her originality and brilliance as a solo and chamber music performer across the United States. She is a founding member of the innovative flute duo ZAWA! and the summer flute intensive Passion Flute: Foundations for Creative Performing. Rommereim is a composer whose work has been described as “richly expressive” by the New York Times. His choral works have been performed by distinguished ensembles across the United States and his works for theater, created in collaboration with Craig Quintero, have been performed at international festivals in Taiwan and South Korea.
