Two compositions by Jon Bauman, a Maryland composer and professor emeritus from the Frostburg State University Department of Music, will be performed in three concerts at the Goethe Institute in Rome and in Farfa, Italy, in November.
"The String Quartet No. 4" will be played by the Klee String Quartet from Venice. “Moments” for solo clarinet will be performed by the Italian clarinetist Federico Paci in a multi-media concert. “Moments” is required as part of the performance examination at several Italian conservatories. Over 75 of Bauman’s compositions have been performed and broadcast in the United States and in Europe.
The Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra recorded Symphonies No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, “Horizons,” and the “Divertimento” for string orchestra. The Slovak Radio Orchestra recorded “Adagio.” The Potomac Highlands Symphony Orchestra recorded the “Overture to McNeill’s Rangers.” The Moyzes String Quartet recorded String Quartets No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 and “Adante Cantabile.” “Moments” for solo clarinet was recorded by Italian clarinetist Guido Arbonellu. A CD with Bauman’s four string quartets was released this fall. The string quartet CD, along with two CDs of orchestral music, is available online at cdbaby.com.
Bauman has taught composition and orchestration for three semesters at a conservatory of music in Italy and has taught a “Music Appreciation” course at Allegany College of Maryland.
