The Music Program of the Department of Performing and Creative arts presents a Music Recital on Tuesday, Oct. 18 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P) Recital Hall at 3:00pm featuring “Microtonality in Alois Hába’s Hudba” with Dan Auerbach, violin.

Alois Hába (1893-1973), a Czech composer noted for his work on microtonal music, composed the Hudba in 1922. The Hudba combines Hába’s passion for microtonal music, specifically quarter-tones in this case, with his love for folk music. The work is virtuosic in nature, giving the violin numerous fast, technically demanding passages, made all the more difficult as a result of the micro-intervals.
