he next event in the Music Department series of live-streaming concerts will take place at 8 p.m. Feb. 4 with a performance from the University Orchestra under the direction of Sam McClure, professor of music and director of orchestras.
Ilia Radoslavov, assistant professor of piano, will join the orchestra in a performance of Beethoven’s “Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major.” This concerto is one of Beethoven’s greatest works for the piano and a favorite of audiences everywhere. The orchestra will also perform “Toccata Concertante,” a rarely heard work by the American composer Irving Fine. Fine, who died at the age of 46 in 1962, was one of the most promising American composers of the last century. The “Toccata” is an energetic and brilliant showpiece for the orchestra. The concert will also include “Petite Suite” by Claude Debussy.
In December, the Music Department debuted the ability to stream live events from the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall. It was the result of a three-year collaboration between the department and Truman IT Services. Live streaming of audio and video allows parents, alumni, friends and prospective students of the University to watch the concert from anywhere.
Live-stream performances are available through the Truman Music Department webpage at music.truman.edu/livestream.asp
