The winter holiday spirit is in the studio!  Come and join us for a great holiday program!
CU regular Georgi Slavchev will perform six new piano pieces by prominent film and game composer Penka Kouneva featured on their new CD, Invisible Lifeline:  The Invisible Lifeline, Another Failure, A Shipwreck of Our Plans, Nocturnal, Day of Wrath, and Farewell to E.

Our dear friend and distinguished pianist Eduardo Delgado returns to CU fresh from performing in Argentina, Thailand, China and Japan, with the Bach-Siloti arrangement of the Organ Prelude in G minor and the 3rd and 4th Ballades of Chopin.

Clarinetist James Hodges is returning to play the divine Clarinet Concerto #1 by Carl Maria von Weber, accompanied by pianist Mary Au.

And the stupendously adventurous tenor Timur Bekbosunov makes an all-too-rare appearance along with the equally audacious and acclaimed pianist Mark Robson in a surprise performance that is sure to beguile us. 
Classical Underground is proud to be part of Carson community and this year it is our special joy to have our Annual Holiday Season Toy Drive to benefit Carson Sheriff's Department Gang Diversion Team (GDT), one of the most recognized such programs in the nation.  The amazing GDT team members headed by department veteran Deputy Fred Noya will deliver toys directly to Carson families in need.

Michael Klein "Contemplation" Oil 12"x 16"

It is always a great pleasure to see new works by one of my favorite Contemporary Realist painters, Michael Klein. It is certainly even more exciting to see them in person at his latest solo show at Maxwell Alexander Gallery. 

In his new body of work, Michael continues his attention to an intriguing and thought-provoking subject: the Spanish mustangs that have been roaming the East Coast for the past 450 years, abandoned by early explorers of the Americas. "Day after day, as history has unfolded around them, several herds of wild horses have been roving the shore aimlessly," says Michael.

Depicting a parallel world with a different perception of time is a unique mark of Michael's works that we can see in the ethereal, time-suspending qualities of his widely admired still lifes. Whether in his still lifes, portraits or wild horses series, Michael continues to find unexpected representations for such a contemplative and evocative theme.

Michael's solo show is a not to be missed event if you are interested in developments in the contemporary representational art movement.
