Also on the program is Osvaldo Golijov's "Last Round;" Vivaldi's "Concerto in C Major for Two Trumpets and Orchestra, RV 537" with trumpeters Scott Quackenbush and K. Craig Bircher; and Schubert's "Symphony #3 in D Major, D. 200." This concert is conducted by Omaha's music director Thomas Wilkins.

The next "Nebraska Concerts," airing Sunday, Oct. 10, is from a Lincoln Friends of Chamber Music concert. Cellist Matt Haimovitz, violinist Andy Simionescu and violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama perform Beethoven's "String Trio in G Major, Op. 9, #1" and Jean Francaix's "Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello." Haimovitz and Simionescu also perform Ravel's "Duo for Violin and Cello." With a second violin provided by Elizabeth Suh-Lane, the group plays Beethoven's "Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95 'Serioso.'"

There is no "Nebraska Concerts" performance scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 17, due to NET Radio's annual fund drive.

Also, UNL faculty member Craig Fuller plays the tuba in a recital featuring works by Paul Hindemith, G.
