On Wednesday, September 28, members of Cambrian’s Faculty of Music organized an energizing lunchtime recital. All college faculty, staff and students were invited to bring their lunches to this first musical event of the school year. “Our audiences enjoy the sense of peace and relaxation that live music performances bring them,” said pianist and faculty member, Dr. Charlene Biggs. For the most part, the program selections did just that, like The Last Rose of Summer, performed by soprano and voice professor Pamela Teed. However, the recital ended with an intellectually-stimulating piece selected by Cambrian’s new guitar professor, Dr. Matthew Gould. “Enigma for Violin and Guitar was written in homage to Friedrich Nietzsche,” said Gould. “I chose it since it’s a thought-provoking piece. It sounds more eastern than western, and if it was visual art, you might picture it as an abstract.”  Gould’s wife, violinist Beth Ilana Schneider-Gould, performed the piece with him. The pair moved to Sudbury in August, from Phoenix, Arizona. Together, they form duo46, an international touring ensemble with a repertoire of 400 works, focusing on new classical and contemporary music.
