The New Horizons Symphony Goes Russian
Conductor Shawn Robinson loves the colors, textures, and excitement of Russian music, particularly that of the so-called "Mighty Handful," a group of 19th-century Russian composers. Robinson, who leads the New Horizons Symphony Orchestra at NMSU, came by KRWG to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the Russian music that he chose for their February concert, and how he came to conduct the long-standing community orchestra.
