LONG BEACH -- World-renowned Parisian violinist Alexandre Brussilovsky will present a recital April 1 at The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast.

"Salut d'Amour" celebrates international musical romance with a wide selection of pieces. The recital will start at 7 p.m. in the Advanced Education Center Auditorium at the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.

Free and open to the public, the recital will feature violinist Daniel Tringov and pianist Dancho Yordanov from Sofia, Bulgaria.

After opening with Igor Stravinsky's "Suite Italienne," the first half of the program will continue with the sentimental Mexican serenade "Estrellita" by Manual Ponce, "Romance" by Sergei Rachmaninoff, "As a Melody" by Johannes Brahms and will end with Brahms' "Scherzo."

After intermission, the program's title piece by Edward Elgar will highlight the recital, followed by Claude Debussy's "En bateau." The recital closes with a highly virtuosic "Fantasy on Gershwin's Porgy and Bess" by Igor Frolov. Popular melodies include "Summertime," "My Man's Gone Now," "I Got Plenty of Nuttin'," "Bess, You Is My Woman Now," and "It Ain't Necessarily So."

Brussilovsky was born in the Ukraine in 1953. After winning grand prizes in numerous international violin competitions, including the Grand Prix and Albert Rousssel Prize at the Jacques Thibaud Competition in 1975, he spent the next decade performing outside Russia. He left in 1985 and moved to France. There he built his career, dividing his time between concert halls and teaching.

An international soloist, Brussilovsky has been invited to give concert performances, solo recitals and master classes all over the world.

Theresa Sanchez, a Mississippi pianist who makes several appearances each year both as a soloist and collaborative pianist, will accompany him. She recently premiered Cary Smith's "Piano Concerto" with the Meridian Symphony and can be heard on a newly released compact disc, "Southern Nights," as soloist with the Southern Miss Symphony Orchestra. In July 2003 she will perform and teach at the International Music Academy at Pontlevoy, France.

This event is presented as part of the Southern Miss Gulf Coast Ambassador Series, which began last October with three musical events and features six more this spring.
