Jill Felber, UC Santa Barbara professor of flute, will present Fantasy, a chamber music concert, with oboist Thomas Gallant and pianist Dianne Frazer, 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, in Karl Geiringer Hall on the UCSB campus. The trio will perform works by Madeleine Dring, Benjamin Britten, Gaetano Donizetti and Jacques Ibert.

Hailed for her “beautifully finished performances” by The Detroit News and praised by Musical America for her “handsome performance,” Felber has performed solo recitals, chamber music, and concertos on five continents and has held residencies in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, France, Switzerland, Great Britain, Italy, Canada, and the U.S.

She is known worldwide for her contributions to new music, having premiered some 500 works for the flute and released world premiere recordings for Centaur Records, CRI, Neuma Records, BCM+D Records, and ZAWA!MUSIC.

For the Fantasy concert, Felber will reunite with her colleagues Gallant and Dianne Frazer, with whom she began collaborating in the 1980s. Felber met Gallant while they were both on the woodwind faculty at Ohio University (1986-89), and has performed as a duo with Frazer since 1985, giving hundreds of performances nationally and internationally.

The pair have recorded multiple albums together, including Fusions, a collection of arrangements of popular and classical songs.

The Fantasy program will consist of works featuring the virtuosic nature of each of the instruments, beginning with Dring’s “Trio for Flute, Oboe and Piano.” Dring, a British composer, singer, stage actress, and artist, studied at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Vaughan Williams, Herbert Howells and Gordon Jacob.

She was most known for her pieces for solo piano, piano duets, songs with piano, and chamber music.

Following the trio, Gallant will present selections from Benjamin Britten’s “Metamorphoses after Ovid” for solo oboe, program music written in 1951 that characterizes six figures from Roman mythology.

For this performance, Gallant will feature three of the six movements: Pan (“who played upon the reed pipe which was Syrinx, his beloved”); Bacchus (“at whose feasts is heard the noise of gaggling women’s tattling tongues and shouting out of boys”); and Arethusa (“who, flying from the love of Alpheus the river god, was turned into a fountain”).

Next up, Felber and Frazer will perform Jacob Gade’s “Tango Fantasia,” a dramatic piece reminiscent of an old Hollywood musical, a nod to Gade’s career in film music. To close out the first half, Felber and Frazer will perform Gaetano Donizetti’s “1819 Sonata in C Major, A 503” for flute and piano.

The second half of the evening will begin with Jacques Ibert’s haunting “Deux Interludes,” arranged for flute, oboe, and piano, followed by one of Felber and Frazer’s popular “Fusion” works, “Fusion II,” a lyrical combination of Richard Strauss’ song “Morgen” and Ian Clarke’s piece for flute and piano, “Orange Dawn.”

Gallant and Frazer will present Henri Brod’s charming “Fantasy on the Mad Scene” from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, followed by another of Felber and Frazer’s “Fusion” works, “Fusion VI,” a combination of Stanley Myers’ “Cavatina” and Harold Arlen’s classic “Over the Rainbow.”

The program closes with Russian composer, oboist and conductor Andrey Rubtsov’s brilliant single-movement work “Marbella Fantasy,” for flute, oboe and piano (2004).
