Free Admission

UCLA Symphony, our campus-wide orchestra, begins its Winter Quarter concert with Brahms’ only work constructed from college drinking songs, his rollicking Academic Festival Overture.  The program continues with one of the great romantic-era violin concertos, the Violin Concerto No. 1 by Max Bruch, with Masters violin student Ji Eun Hwang as soloist.  After intermission, a rarity: Georgi Sviridov’s 1975 suite from Pushkin’s novella, “Snow Storm.”  Initially written as film music for an adaptation of this Russian literary favorite, the work brought worldwide attention to Sviridov, though it is rarely performed in the United States.  UCLA Professor of voice Vladimir Chernov narrates the story in Russian accompanied by English subtitles; projections provide an immersive experience for the audience.
