Posted on November 09, 2015, BY Matthew Beltz
The Richter Uzur Duo will perform a whimsical blend of classical, world, and contemporary music on Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m. in the lobby of the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. The free performance is open to the public and tickets are not required.
Guitarist Brad Richter and cellist Viktor Uzur are consummate performers and accomplished composers who have each played around the globe to critical acclaim and international awards. Together, the Richter Uzur Duo pairs exquisite originals with blazing improvisations and iconic works by composers such as Bartok, Gershwin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Saint Saens.
The Richter Uzur Duo has played hundreds of concerts in North America, South America, Europe and Asia and has a rapidly widening circle of communities around the globe that invite them back again and again. In the U.S. the duo is perhaps best known through its regular appearances on Performance Today - North Americaʼs most listened to classical music program - as well as frequent national and international broadcasts on the Armed Forces Radio Network and programs such as PBSʼs WoodSongs and NPRʼs Classical Guitar Alive, which named their debut CD Best New Release in 2010.
