Frank Gabriel Campos, professor of trumpet, and Nicholas Walker, associate professor of string bass, are appearing twice this week on Performance Today, a nationally syndicated radio and internet show on American Public Media that reaches 1.5 million listeners worldwide.
Concertizing since 2007, the versatile duo is known for their creative reinterpretations of music from classical, jazz, rock, pop, other genres. This performance was originally recorded in Ithaca College's Hockett Family Recital Hall and features the duo quoting Baroque composer J.S. Bach in their creative cover of the popular song.
The two professors also gave a live performance of Paul McCartney's "Here, There, Everywhere" this past Monday on the program. Campos and Walker's arrangement of the popular Beatles tune, one of McCartney's favorites among all of his hits, features only trumpet and bass.
