Guest soloist for KSO’s Russian Masterworks concert, Feb. 23 and 24, 8 p.m. at the Tennessee Theatre

René Mandel

Does classical music appeal to a variety of people?

You’re going to play Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto. Is this piece difficult to play?

We always hear Stravinsky classified as “primitivist,” “neo-classical” and “serialist.” What do these terms mean, and how would you classify the late Russian masterworks?

What can we expect to take away from this concert?

Is a violin just a fiddle played incorrectly?

When you tour, how much time do you need to spend practicing with the local orchestra in order to make the music happen?
