Works include Variations on “The Turkish Lady,” performed by Kohn and pianist Rob Frankenberry. For this work, composer Allan Blank, then living in Virginia, chose a musical theme that is also from Virginia: “The Turkish Lady” is one of the names given in Virginia to an old English ballad which, in the seminal work of ballad scholar Francis James Child, is identified as “Young Beichan". The digital recording includes thoughtful program notes on the pieces.
Introduction, Seven Vignettes, and Conclusion for alto saxophone and contrabass, performed here by Kohn and Michael Ibrahim, proposes highly contrasted moods within a consistent constructivist technique. The radically different techniques and characters of the two instruments are taken as a challenge to be overcome by both the composer and then the performers.
Andrew Kohn teaches contrabass and music theory at West Virginia University. He holds an Artist Diploma from the Peabody Conserva¬tory, where he studied contrabass with Eugene Levinson, and a Ph.D in music theory and composition from the University of Pittsburgh, where he studied with Eric Moe and Pablo Ortiz.
