A chat with Music Director and Conductor Octavio Más-Arocas
The next Marquette Symphony Orchestra concert is titled "Romantic Virtuosity," and takes place Saturday, January 14th at Kaufman Auditorium in Marquette.
The concert features music by Jean Sibelius and Vasily Kalinnikov. Sibelius' Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47 will also feature violin soloist Yvonne Lam, followed by Kalinnikov's Symphony No. 1 in G minor. The composers were born a year apart, in 1865 and 1866, respectively, but Sibelius lived to the age of 91, while Kalinnikov died of tuberculosis two days before his 35th birthday.
Music Director and Conductor Octavio Más-Arocas stopped by Public Radio 90 studios to speak about the repertoire and soloist Yvonne Lam:
