The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Pavel Kogan and featuring American cellist Joshua Roman, performs music by Saint-Saëns, Brahms and Gounod at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11, in Penn State’s Eisenhower Auditorium.
A San Francisco Chronicle critic described Roman, soloist for Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, as “a cellist of extraordinary technical and musical gifts.” The Oklahoma City native is also a composer, curator and programmer. He’s recognized for his efforts as the artistic director of Seattle Town Hall’s Town Music series and as a next-generation innovator named a 2011 TED Fellow.
The orchestra’s program also includes music from Gounod’s ballet “Faust” and Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor.
