Catherine Herbener, adjunct professor of piano at Concordia University, Nebraska, and David Neely, professor of violin at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, presented a recital on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at 5:10 p.m. in the recital hall of the Music Center on the Concordia University campus.  

The program featured two essentially unknown sonatas for violin and piano by American composer, Harry Newton Redman.  Both sonatas are written in the romantic style. Neely discovered the two sonatas while involved in a research and recording project of lesser known and unknown American music for violin found in the library of the New England Conservatory.
