ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University Professor of Music Dr. Marcela Faflak
will present a faculty lecture-recital involving the work of Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky.
Faflak will present the lecture-recital – which includes performance, lecture and multimedia – at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in the NSU Johnson Fine Arts Center’s Berggren Recital Hall.
Faflak will perform Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” a 35-minute piano composition made of about 10 musical movements. The movements are based on pictures of Mussorgsky’s friends. All have very descriptive titles and are connected by a promenade.
The multimedia will include projected pictures, audio samples and a small art exhibition.
Faflak, who teaches piano, keyboard literature and piano pedagogy, has been a member of Northern's music faculty since 1996.
