Mostly Maltz Classicism Revisited

Its pinnacle occurred 200 years ago, but classical music’s influence lives on in works by a new generation of composers – including USC Aiken professor Dr. Richard Maltz. USC Aiken Etherredge Center presents Mostly Maltz – Classicism Revisited February 8. Under the baton of Maestra Suzanna Pavlovsky, the program begins with a piece by Beethoven and then guides the audience on a journey with neo-classical works inspired by Maltz’s family. Symphony No. 2 Fraternal is a poignant and playful tribute to Maltz’s brother, Gary. The performance includes the world premiere of Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, written for and performed by the composer’s son, Vienna-based concert pianist Daniel Adam Maltz. USC Aiken professors and other local professional musicians are members of the orchestra. Tickets $10; free for students.
