KUNR broadcasts RCO’s performance tonight

Tonight at 7:00 PST, KUNR will broadcast a recording of the Reno Chamber Orchestra’s Sunday, January 29 performance.

Pianist Pascal Rogé – who by the acclamation of audience and orchestra members alike seems to have been one of our most popular soloists ever – performed the “Egyptian” Concerto by Saint-Saëns with Maestro Theodore Kuchar and the RCO. That was followed by a much-loved encore, Erik Satie’s Gymnopedie No. 1, which you’ll also get to hear in this broadcast (by the way, Rogé’s classic recording of the Gymnopedie was used in the well-known documentary film Man on Wire, which you can check out here).

The concert began with Strauss’s “Persian March,” and concluded with Schubert’s “Great C Major” Symphony.

It was one of the best attended and most enthusiastically received of recent RCO performances. Those of you who were there will probably want to experience the music again, and if you weren’t able to attend, here’s your chance to find out what all the enthusiasm was about.

KUNR is at 88.7 FM in Reno and other nearby areas, and is also available on translators throughout northern Nevada and eastern California (listed at the station’s website). You can also listen via the station’s live Internet stream – just click on “Listen Live” at KUNR’s website.
