The Binghamton University Music Department is proud to present "For Slava: A concert remembering the Great Russian Cellist Rostropovich" on Sunday, April 19th at 7:30 p.m. in Casadesus Recital Hall at Binghamton University. This concert will be performed by cellist Stephen Stalker, pianist Michael Salmirs, soprano Mary Burgess, and violinist Patricia Sunwoo featuring music by the three composers that Rostropovich knew and championed his entire career, Benjamin Britten, Dmitry Shostakovich and Serge Prokofiev. "It is not an exaggeration to say that the history of the cello in the twentieth century would be unthinkable without the name of Rostropovich," writes his biographer Elizabeth Wilson. "He has seemed to me like a personification of the cello itself." Tickets for this concert are $10 for the general public, $5 for faculty, staff and seniors, and $2 for students. Tickets are available at the Anderson Center Box Office from noon to 5:30 p.m. weekdays by calling (607) 777-ARTS, online at anderson.binghamton.edu, or at the door.
