The “best of” Furman’s music professors
Three of Furman’s music professors were involved in endeavors that made several “Best Of” lists in 2011.
A CD by Duo Runedako, “Recombinant Nocturnes,” was selected as one of the best new classical albums of 2011. The duo is made up of music professors Dan Koppelman and Ruth Neville, who are husband and wife.
Percussion professor Omar Carmenates was in New York City recently to take part in two performances of John Luther Adams’ “Inuksuit,” which was selected as one of the top 10 classical music performances by several publications, including New York Magazine. Carmenates was in charge when the Furman campus hosted the U.S. premiere of the piece in 2010.
