Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah: Enjoy an evening of piano works celebrating the 200th anniversaries of great Romantic Virtuoso Composers. Assistant Professor of Music, Kirill Gliadkovsky, performs a piano recital featuring works from prominent Romantic composers, Frédéric Chopin, Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt. The recital begins at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, October 4, in SUU’s Thorley Recital Hall. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
Repertoire selections for the evening include Chopin's Military Polonaise and the Fantasie in F Minor which demonstrates "a great emotional peak in the piano repertory," Gliadkovsky remarks. Also included in the program are Schumann's Symphonic Etudes, considered one of the most difficult pieces in the repertory, which explores the new direction of technique and orchestral sound effect in piano music of the 19th century.
Born in Moscow, Russia, Kirill Gliadkovsky attended the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, and earned both his Masters and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees at the University of Southern California. Since the age of six, Kirill Gliadkovsky has performed in some of the great concert halls of Russia, Italy, the United Kingdom, Poland, Mongolia, Canada, Japan, and the United States. Mr. Gliadkovsky has appeared on numerous live TV and radio programs and has recorded six CDs for Alexei Records and CMK Classic labels.
