Patrick Murphy, performing and fine arts, will discuss his recent trip to Moscow during this week’s Music at Midweek, on Wednesday, February 5, at 12:30 p.m., in Mago Hunt Center recital hall. The event is free and open to all. Murphy will focus on the trials and tribulations he faced in attempting to obtain musical materials from the Soviet era, despite the opinion of other researchers that “it simply can’t be done.” From stories of being held at gunpoint to photos of Lenin’s tomb, all are welcome to look and listen into one of the world’s greatest musical enigmas.
David De Lyser, performing and fine arts, will also present “Hosanna Filio David: The compositional process from concept to performance” (or, “How to compose a work that includes your own name”). De Lyser will discuss his process of fulfilling a commission for an original choral work written for and premiered by the Palm Sunday Chorus of Central Wisconsin.
