Contemporary Luminaries

By August March [ Sat Mar 1 2014 12:00 PM ]

Under the baton of David Felberg, The New Mexico Philharmonic presents an afternoon sojourn into symphonic spaces tomorrow at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). In addition to Mozart’s brief yet savory “Symphony Number 32 (K. 338)” and the accomplished “Symphony 38 (K. 504),” the orchestra uses this performance to highlight the graceful talents of Philharmonic violinist Ruxandra Simionescu-Marquardt; the award-winning instrumentalist, performer and educator—who interestingly entered the US after defecting from Communist Romania in 1986—will take on two notable works by Tchaikovsky, “Sérénade mélancolique in b-flat minor for Violin and Orchestra, op. 26” and “Valse-Scherzo in C Major, op. 34.” Tickets for this 2pm matinee concert range from $24 to $68 and are available via the New Mexico Philharmonic website, nmphil.org.
