This mixture of playfulness and serious music making is what defines New Morse Code, a music duo of Yale University graduates who are using inventive performances to expand the reach of classical music to a younger generation.

APSU concert to showcase beauty and versatility of the cello in Britten Suites

 

The APSU Music DepartmentClarksville, TN – In the early 1960s, the famed English composer Benjamin Britten attended a London concert featuring a young Russian cellist named Mstislav Rostropovich. According to the Colorado Britten Society, the English composer bobbed “up and down like a school boy” as he listened to Rostropovich.

That concert was a fortuitous event in the development of modern classical music. The two men became friends, and Britten went on to write three stunningly beautiful cello suites for Rostropovich.
