Nebraska Concerts

Sunday, April 30, at 1 p.m. Central on Nebraska Concerts:

The Meadowlark Music Festival has been a Nebraska staple for well over a decade, bringing in great performs each summer for an array of concerts across genres. On this week's Nebraska Concerts we're going to hear two performances from the Festival's 2016 lineup.

Polish pianist Marina Pacowski gives a far flung overview of French music, from the expected such as Debussy and Satie, to the unexpected, including Charlie Parker and Edith Piaf. Then violinist Misha Vayman pushes the boundaries with a virtuosic recital that includes Heinrich Ernst's daredevil set of variations on The Last Rose of Summer.
