On a recent episode of Mizzou Music, Dr. Iskander Ahmadulin looked discussed his upcoming trumpet and piano recital scheduled for this Sunday, September 24 at 3:00 p.m. at the Whitmore Recital Hall on the MU campus.

Dr. Ahmadulin will be performing alongside pianist Dr. Natalia Bolshakova. The show is titled “In imitation of Dokshitser” and features works that were transcribed by famous Russian Trumpet Player Timofei Dokshitser. The recital will feature piece like Piano Concerto No. 1, Op.35. A piece in which Dr. Ahmadulin says “Dokshitser always regretted the fact that Shostakovich didn’t write the Concerto for trumpet, and Dockshitser blamed himself for not being persistent enough”.

Also, on last week's Mizzou Music, Dr. Tim Howe talked about the Centennial Kick-off Concert coming up next Monday, September 25 at 7 p.m. in the Missouri Theater. "The concert is a happy light-hearted fun affair... I relied on the great creativity of my colleagues,” said Dr. Howe when discussing how the program was pieced together. The celebratory program "is going to be non-stop action and will last a little bit over an hour," added Howe.
