Composition by FSU Music Professor Dr. Jon Bauman to be Performed by Chamber Orchestra Kremlin
"Horizons," a composition by Frostburg State University music professor Dr. Jon Bauman, will be performed by the Chamber Orchestra Kremlin on Saturday, Sept. 22 as part of the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF). This concert is scheduled for 8 p.m. at Garrett Community College.
Besides "Horizons, " which was commissioned by the Downers Grove, Ill. High School Orchestras, the orchestra will perform a Mozart "Divertimento," the Janacek "Suite for Strings" and Tchaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings."
Music composed by Dr. Bauman has been performed in Europe and across the United States. Last year, his "Duo" for violin and cello was selected for performance at the Alfeo Gigli Festival in Italy. His "Adagio" for orchestra was recorded by the Slovak Radio Orchestra for the Master Musicians Collective compact disc series.
The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, founded and led by Conductor Misha Rachlevsky, has earned national and international recognition as one of Russia's leading ensembles. The Orchestra was founded in 1991, when the Swiss recording company Claves approached Rachlevsky with an offer to record discs of Russian classical music. The conductor gathered some of the finest young musicians in Moscow to form the 18-member string ensemble, which maintains an active schedule touring Russia and abroad, and recording.
