Piano instructor Dr. Kirill Gliadkovsky and violin instructor Dr. Yorgos Kouritas will be performing a chamber music concert inside the McKinney Theater Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m.
The concert will feature the work of German composers, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms.
The theme of the show is in keeping with the tradition of the three great German composers of the late 18 and 19 century, according to Gliadkovsky in a phone interview with the Lariat.
“Some say these are the three main composers of all time,” Kouritas said in a separate interview.
According to Kouritas, each three classical composers best represents the type of musical style of their time, Baroque [Bach], Classical [Beethoven] and a Romantic [Brahms].
“They are very well-known composers, they have great pieces of music,” Kouritas said.
Kouritas will be playing “Bach’s Partita No. 3,” “Beethoven’s Sonata No.5” and “Brahms’s Sonata No. 2.”
“There will be a combination of soloist music and chamber music to satisfy both types of music lovers,” Kirill said.
Traditionally, few musicians perform and few instruments are played in a chamber music concert making it a very intimate concert for performers and the audience.
“Chamber music was a favorite type of musical concert style in late 18 century and 19 century,” said Kirill. “Normally performers put their best efforts in chamber music concerts.”
“In music, passion and dedication is very important, for any performance. We artists are very passionate people,” Kouritas said. “We would love to see as many students as possible in the concert. We are doing it for them.”
General Admission for the show is $15 while admission for seniors is $12 and student admission is set at $10. Children will have free admission with a paying adult.
