Minnesota native and flutist Marissa Olin will premiere a new and improved version of Ricardo Lorenz’s Perfiles Sospechosos on Sunday, April 18, at Michigan State’s Hart Recital Hall. Originally a trio for flute, cello, and percussion commissioned by the National Flute Association, Olin will premiere a quartet version of Perfiles Sospechosos that incorporates bass clarinet. “As soon as it was premiered in 2007 at the NFA New Mexico convention,” explains Lorenz, “I felt the work could greatly benefit from the addition of a low wind instrument to back up the cello and complement the flute’s high register, particularly in the last movement which calls for piccolo. Only after I made the adaptation I realized that the new version sounds –and looks– like a piece for flute and rhythm combo.” Marissa Olin attended the NFA Convention’s premiere of Perfiles Sospechosos (Spanish for “suspicious profiles”). She has performed the original trio version on several occasions and Lorenz created the new version especially for her. For this premiere, Olin will be joined by cellist Callum Hall, bass clarinetist Remi Hamel, and percussionist Ty Forquer, who also appears in the photo above (left of Olin).
