HAO HAUNG, piano
Klages performed the solo trumpet part of Handel's Messiah (1741) at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, Israel for an internationally broadcast television special and sound recording in an innovative and ground-breaking performance. He played for King Hussein's birthday celebration in Amman, Jordan, and was twice invited to return. Currently, he is professor of trumpet and jazz at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.
Klages will be accompanied on piano by Hao Hating, professor of music at Scripps College. Together, these two musicians cofounded the Animas Music Festival in Durango, Colorado.
Their program will include selections from Joseph Haydn, Carl Hohne, Giuseppe Torelli, and Alexander Artunian. Klages will be performing on B, C, and piccolo trumpets, cornet, and flugel horn. The recital is the final concert of the 1995-96 Stotsenberg Chamber Music Series.
