UCR Orchestra, with pianist Nadia Shpachenko
Ruth Charloff, conductor

UCR Orchestra welcomes renowned pianist Nadia Shpachenko performing the fiery, tender Piano Concerto No. 1 by Chopin.  The program also features Bartok’s Hungarian Sketches, the witty Jeux d’Enfants (“Children’s Games”) by Bizet, and Schubert’s heart-rending Symphony No. 8 (“Unfinished”).

Nadia Shpachenko has been described as a “truly inspiring and brilliant pianist. . . spellbinding in sensitivity and mastery of technique.”  She is renowned particularly for brilliant explorations of contemporary music. Her CD “Woman at the New Piano: American Music of 2013” was nominated for Grammy awards in three categories.  Concert highlights include solo recitals at Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall, the Phillips Collection, and REDCAT@Disney Hall, as well as many appearances with orchestras in Europe and the Americas. She is Professor of Music at Cal Poly Pomona and Claremont Graduate University.
