New Music for Old Instruments

April 20, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome Timothy Urban on  recorders and Kathleen Scheide on  harpsichord to the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary for a program of pieces by Eben, Jones, Pinkham, Poos, composed for and presented on historic instruments. Familiar tunes “Greenseleeves” and “Morning has Broken” are interwoven, along with more experimental works.

Ensemble Le Meslange des Plaisirs (www.kathleenscheide.com/meslange.html) specializes in late 18th c. chamber music and salon music 1750-1810, with diversions into earlier music and new music for historic instruments. The ensemble name translates as “A Compendium of Delights,” and was used by 18th-century theorists to describe a blending of national styles.

Kathleen Scheide (www.kathleenscheide.com) has concertized on harpsichord, early keyboard instruments and organ throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe, Russia and the Far East. She teaches at Westminster Choir College and Rowan College at Burlington. She lives in a seventeenth century stone house, Wiggan, and is organist in the 1740 stone barn at Church of the Loving Shepherd, West Chester, Pennsylvania. Dr. Scheide earned degrees in early music and organ performance at New England Conservatory (with honors) and the University of Southern California (organ department prize). She is also a published composer with a significant discography.

Timothy Urban is active as both singer and instrumentalist, having performed in solo and chamber music recitals in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Hungary, Austria and Brazil. Dr. Urban is on the faculty at Rutgers University, Westminster Choir College and Westminster Conservatory of Music. Dr. Urban holds graduate degrees in voice and recorder performance (SUNY Binghamton), early music performance practice (Sarah Lawrence College), and music theory and history (Rutgers University) and a doctorate in musicology from Rutgers University. He received a Fulbright scholarship for study at the Kodály Institute in Kecskemét, Hungary and a D.A.A.D. Fellowship for study at Leipzig University. http://www.masongross.rutgers.edu/music/faculty/timothy-urban https://www.facebook.com/timothy.urban.35
