In its first concert of 2015, First Muse Chamber Music will present a program dedicated to the bassoon and flute. Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra's principal bassoonist, Matt McDonald, and principal flutist, Rebecca Gilbert, will join pianist and composer Daniel Pesca, and RPO principal violist Melissa Matson, for works that combine those instruments in several variations. The group will perform three trio works for flute, bassoon, and piano: Astor Piazzolla's "Otono Porteno," Beethoven's "work without opus" 37, and a piece by Chick Corea (yes, the jazz pianist Chick Corea). Michal Spisak's "Duetto Concertante" will feature the viola and bassoon working together. And the group will premiere Pesca's recently-written Trio for Flute, Viola, and Bassoon.

First Muse will present WindCraft: Music for Bassoon and Flute on Sunday, March 29, at First Unitarian Church, 220 South Winton Road. 7:30 p.m. $5-$10 and $20 for a family; 25 percent of ticket revenue will go to the Honduras Project.
