Principal Guest Conductor Daniel Hege Leads the Tulsa Symphony in a "Dreams and Revolution" Concert

Aired on Friday, January 15th.

On this edition of ST, we welcome Daniel Hege back to our show. Hege is the Principal Guest Conductor for the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, and tomorrow night, Saturday the 16th, he'll again hold the baton as the TSO presents a concert entitled "Dreams and Revolution." This stylistically diverse concert begins at 7:30pm, and it's described like so at the TSO website (where you'll also find information on ticket availability as well as other performances): "Hege returns to the podium to conduct Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A Major featuring Tulsa Symphony's Principal Clarinet, David Carter. The concert opens with Debussy's ethereal tone poem, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, which paints dreamlike impressions of desire. What the faun sought in love, the revolutionaries sought in freedom in Shostakovich's Symphony No.11 in G minor ('The Year 1905'), which employs folk melodies in orchestration reminiscent of film scores of the 1950s."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
