Music professor gets rave reviews in United States and Europe
October 23, 2000
A CD showcasing the works of Dr. Stanley Yates, associate professor of music, was reviewed by England's “Classical Guitar Magazine” and described as “a landmark recording.” The CD was also reviewed by “Soundboard Magazine,” who described it as “a recording to hear and learn from.”
Yates performed at the Spoletto festival in Charleston and at the Lagonegro International Festival of Contemporary Music in Lagonegro, Italy this summer. The performances premiered music written for Yates by the Bulgarian composer Atanas Ourkouzounov and Manhattan composer Mark Delpriora.
The Italian performance also marked the European premier of “Winterzeit,” a composition dedicated to Yates by Italian composer Angelo Gilardino.
