Cello-Piano Recital at UNO Scheduled for April 10
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Department of Music will be hosting a duo cello-piano recital on April 10 featuring David Low, Kayser Distinguished Professor of Cello at UNO, and Lithuanian pianist Riamanta Vingras, a former Professor of Piano at Siaulai University.
The Sunday concert will take place at the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on the UNO campus at 7:30 p.m.
The acclaimed duo has performed together for a decade, touring extensively in the United States as well as Lithuania. Works will include Rachmoninoff’s Sonata in G, Piazzolla’s “Le Grand Tango” and Barber’s Sonata.
Low’s performances have been called "sincerely passionate," by Edward Rothstein of the New York Times, and ones showcasing "the technique of a virtuoso," by legendary violinist Josef Gingold.
Vingras has, in addition to Lithuania, been involved in concerts throughout Russia, Germany and Switzerland. He is an expert in the work of Alexander Scriabin and Mikalojus Ciurlionis.
Tickets for the event are $5 for the general public and $4 for students without an NUID. Those with an NUID can get into the concert for free.
