Violinist Michael Ludwig returns to Cheyenne for "Russian Reflections"


Michael Ludwig

The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra presents its Masterpiece IV concert, “Russian Reflections,” on February 28 in Cheyenne

The program:
Alexander Borodin—In the Steppes of Central Asia
Alexander Glazunov—Violin Concerto in A minor, op. 82
          Michael Ludwig, violin
Piotr IlyichTchaikovsky—Symphony No. 4 in F minor, op. 36

“Russian Reflections” presents the many moods of Russian music.  Borodin’s short tone poem depicts the wide open spaces of the Russian steppes, complete with Russian folk songs.  Violinist Michael Ludwig returns to Cheyenne to perform Glazunov’s very Russian–and romantic–violin concerto.   Blending lyricism and virtuosity, this is a perfect showcase for Michael’s incredible violin talent.  The program ends with Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony, in which fate, darkness, love, and triumph all occur like a great Russian novel.  This symphony ends in such a glorious frenzy of excitement that the last few minutes of the piece is said to hold the record for the most number of cymbal crashes per minute!
