WSU Symphony Orchestra
Location: Duerksen Fine Arts Center, Miller Concert Hall

Faculty cellist Leonid Shukaev, a founding member of the St. Petersburg String Quartet, appears as soloist with the WSU Symphony Orchestra Thursday, December 6, at 7:30pm, in Miller Concert Hall. Featuring music by Tchaikovsky, Berlioz, and Mason Bates, the program will be conducted by Mark Laycock, Director of Orchestras. Shukaev will perform Tchaikosky's "Variations on a Rococo Theme," a virtuosic showpiece for cello and orchestra. The work, named for an ornate style of early Classical music, ranges in mood from melancholy to impetuous, intimate to heroic. Despite its title, musicologists believe the theme is Tchaikovsky's own original creation. The program also features Berlioz' "Symphonie Fantastique," one of the first great masterworks of the Romantic era. The revolutionary, faintly autobiographical work, composed when Berlioz was 26 years old, is a powerful, vibrant depiction of obsessive love and its fatal consequences. Opening the concert will be "White Lies for Lomax" by contemporary composer Mason Bates. Its jazz-inspired rhythm and harmony pay tribute to ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax, one of the first scholars to preserve the music of the American South.

Tickets for this event are $7 with discounts available and they go on sale November 15, 2012. For more information and tickets, call the WSU Fine Arts Box Office at (316)978-3233.
