Event Details

Please join us for an afternoon of music and physics as we explore the idea of timbre. What exactly makes a flute sound different than a cello when playing the same note? We’ll explain some of the science behind the sounds, illustrate with spectrograms, and leave you with the music of composers who we believe truly bring out the fullest expression of each of our instruments.
Refreshments and conversation follow the concert.

Music of Beethoven, Chopin, J.S. Bach, C.P.E Bach, Handel, Robert Dick, Rebecca Clarke and others.

John Greenly – Clarinet, Physics
William Hurley – Viola, Assistant Physics
Laura Campbell – Flute
