I just attended a doctoral lecture recital given by Amanda Virelles, whom I also talked about in the chamber music thread (and linked her MySpace). She was promoting the music of Rodion Shchedrin, a not-so-well-known Russian composer, and I really enjoyed everything she played. I'd recommend checking Shchedrin out to any of you who are looking for something outside the norm. This was her program:

Poem

Four Pieces from "The Humpbacked Horse" Ballet
1. Elder Brothers and Ivan
2. Girls' Roundelay
3. Scherzino
4. I Play the Balalaika

Humoresque

A la Albeniz

Troika

Two Polyphonic Pieces
1. Two-part Invention
2. Basso Ostinato


She said that the Basso Ostinato and the Humoresque are his most well-known pieces, but the A la Albeniz was my favorite. :D
