3-Minute Egg:- Charles Lazarus: Split Personality

Charles Lazarus: Split personality

Charles Lazarus is a very good trumpet player. His piece in this 3-Minute egg was called Zabava, a widely used slavic term which means parties or celebration and also the title of his newest CD and was performed at the Dakota. He plays in many different styles. He tries to infuse several different styles including gypsy music into his style of play. He talks about how he enjoys both the individual work he does and the artistic work which he does with the Minnesota Orchestra. In trying to juggle both, he tries not to tour much or tries not to have a good balance between touring and working at the orchestra. From this egg, his music sound very classical and the combination does is not evident.
