A star flutist only comes around once or twice in a generation — and it’s fair to say that this generation’s strongest candidate is the Swiss-born Emmanuel Pahud.

One of today’s most adventurous musicians, Pahud joined the Berlin Philharmonic as principal flute under Claudio Abbado at age 22, a position he still holds today. For this UMS debut recital, he performs arrangements of sonatas written for other instruments, allowing audiences to experience the works in a completely different soundscape.

PROGRAM

Poulenc Sonata for Flute and Piano
Schubert Arpeggione Sonata in a minor, D. 821
Schumann Fantasy Pieces, Op. 73
Mendelssohn Violin Sonata in F Major (arr. Pahud)
