EWS RELEASE NEw CoLLEGE SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 1 -64 -12/7/67 813/ 355-7131 FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1967 Violinist Richard L. Hoffman, who has performed in Sarasota twice in recent years, will offer a recital next Sunday (December 17) at 3:15 p.m. in College Hall on the New College campus. The recital is open to the public without charge. The Chicago violinist, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, performed in recitals here in 1960 and 1963. Hoffman began studying the violin at the age of five and he was concertmaster of the Youth Orchestra of Greater Chicago for two years. At the same time that he earned his degree in music from the Eastman School he also earned a bachelor of arts in government from the University of Rochester and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. His last concert in Sarasota drew critical praise for performance and also for the selection of a challenging program. An unusual feature of the coming recital will be the performance of the Walton Concertoo "It is seldom heard," says Hoffman. "I think most violinists avoid it because its real difficulty lies not in its physical execution so much as in its intellectual interpretive problems. more


NEW COLLEGE Page 2 "The Walton is a true masterpiece because its great complexity never obscures its musical qualities. It is lovely and lyrical and as easily assimilable on first hearing as any of the 'old boys' works from the last century." comments the violinist. Hoffman. although engaged in the real estate business in Chicago. pursues music avidly and has soloed with the Rockford Symphony Orchestra. He will be accompanied at the piano by Miss Dora Alanen. -30-
