Dubuque a la Russe: Symphonies of Iowa

Tune in Monday at 7 PM to hear the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra in a program of Russian Romantics. Tchaikovsky's glorious Piano Concerto no. 1 features Romania-born guest artist Eugene Alcalay, who was praised by Leonard Bernstein for his “outstanding talent as both a performer and composer." The orchestra, led by music director William Intriligator, also performs Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances and Rimsky-Korsakov's Russian Easter Festival Overture and Capriccio Espagnol.

Romania-born pianist and composer Eugene Alcalay.
