Eric Ruske: A Passion for Music

Sep 27, 2013

Horn player Eric Ruske’s virtuosity has been described in reviews from all over the world as “ebullient,” “impeccable,” “gorgeous,” “sensitive,” “mellifluous,” and more. While in Las Cruces to perform the Horn Concerto by Reinhold Gliere with the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra, he and LCSO conductor Lonnie Klein came to KRWG to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about Gliere, the challenges of practicing and rehearsing, the orchestral side of the concerto, and the passion for life and music that Ruske’s teacher, Dale Clevenger, inspired in him.
