Music Notes: Happy Birthday David Felder!
UB composer and music professor David Felder reaches a milestone birthday.
Felder is a former chair of the UB Music Department and organizes the June in Buffalo New Music Festival every year. Wednesday's (11/12) concert includes this Canzone 31 for Brass Quintet, along with two works featuring Buffalo Philharmonic Bass Trombonist Stefan Sanders. So I asked David what is it about the trombone that appeals to him.
