This Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the MSU College of Music’s Cook Recital Hall, cellist Suren Bagratuni and pianist Ralph Votapek collaborate for a performance of four works. The duo will play sonatas by Benjamin Britten and Johannes Brahms, and variations by Beethoven and Martinu.

Current State's Peter Whorf stopped by Bagratini’s studio late last week to preview the concert and ask the cellist about the compositional appeal of “variations”.
