Iskander Akhmadullin Hawaii concerts
Iskander Akhmadullin, associate professor at the University of Missouri, visited two schools with master classes and recitals in November 2013. On November 23, at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, he worked with several students from the studios of Prof. Ken Hafner and Prof. Mark Minasian, as well as with two high school students who study with Professor Emeritus Grant Okamura. Later that day, Akhmadullin together with his wife, pianist Dr. Natalia Bolshakova, gave a recital followed by a clinic at the Brigham Young University Hawaii, located in Laie--small town on the Northern part of Oahu Island.
The following day, Akhmadullin and Bolshakova returned to the University of Hawai'i to give a recital at Mae Zenke Orvis Auditorium, which is generally regarded as the premier recital hall in the state. The program included works by Torelli, Neruda, Turrin, Liszt/Tabakov, Shchedrin/Dokshizer, Piazzolla/Ackley, Gershwin/Turrin, Monterde/Mendez, and Khachaturyan/Dokshizer.
Many thanks go to the hosts: Dr.Jeffrey Boeckman, Director of Bands, University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, and Dr. David M. Kammerer, Chair, Department of Music and Theatre Arts, BYU-Hawaii.
This tour was funded by MU School of Music, College of Arts and Sciences, MU Arts & Humanities Small Grant Program, and by Edwards Instrument Co.
