Classical Revolution PDX Presents: Lyrical Strings Duo CD Release Show
The Portland-based Lyrical Strings Duo (Lucia Conrad on violin and Stephen Osserman on classical guitar) will perform works from their debut album Evening Songs.

With passionate performances and original arrangements of Chopin, Mendelssohn, Faure, Ponce, Kreisler and more, the duo breathes new life into the dark and mysterious music of the 19th and early-20th centuries.

Acclaimed cellist/singer Ashia Grzesik will open the evening, and other friends will join Lucia and Stephen to perform a wide-range of classical works.


About the duo
Lucia and Stephen met through Classical Revolution PDX. In 2010 they formed the Lyrical Strings Duo, and they've been taking their music to the churches, parks, halls, and living rooms of the Northwest ever since.

Lucia was born and raised in Czech Republic and is a graduate of the Prague Conservatory. She has appeared in both the United States and Europe as a soloist and chamber musician. Now based in Portland, she is the Concertmaster of the Willamette Falls Symphony, Assistant Concertmaster of the Salem Chamber Orchestra and the first violinist in many other regional orchestras and chamber groups.

For over a decade Stephen has worked to take classical guitar to new places. As a student at the Yale School of Music  where he earned a Masters of Music in Guitar Performance  he collaborated with a wide array of artists, creating new artistic idioms by combining traditional guitar repertoire with dance, poetry, and theater. Recently he has focused on arranging Romantic Era works for the duo, which they plan to publish in 2013.

Evening Songs includes many of these arrangements. With a foundation of three Chopin Nocturnes, the album is a dark fantasia that weaves together a set of Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words, Ponce's Mexican-folk-inspired Estrellita, Kreisler's nostalgic gypsy-infused La Gitana, introspective works by Satie, and more.
