Alexei Sultanov Tribute Concert
Sunday, May 22, 2016
6:30 pm | Sanctuary
Admission is free
You are invited to a love story — one told by a world-class musician in memory of another. Our beloved cellist at FUMCFW, Dace Sultanov, will perform her annual tribute concert to the love of her life and all-time inspiration — 1989 Van Cliburn Piano Competition Gold Medalist, Alexei Sultanov. The couple’s friends and fellow musicians will perform with Dace at this year’s commemorative concert. Pianist Larisa Cherkasov and Violinist Eugene Cherkasov will perform works both individually and with Dace, including compositions by Sarasate, Chopin, Brahms’ “Cello Sonata in E minor,” and Mendelssohn’s “Piano Trio No. 1.” Organist Peggy Graff will accompany Dace on the Anne S. and Henry B. Paup Sanctuary Pipe Organ as she performs Massenet’s “Thais.” Together, these celebrated musicians will bring to life the powerful spirit of Alexei Sultanov that lives on in our memories.
