No doubt it's been a rocky path for the Glendale Philharmonic (GPO) until now. Economic woes and injuries to some of its musicians have plagued this ensemble. But like the tough fighter it is, the orchestra has emerged stronger and better, and celebrated its second birthday in grand style on Sunday at Glendale's First Baptist Church.
Out came Ruslan Biryukov, cellist and founder of the GPO, with a sumptuous birthday cake, all while the audience gleefully sang "Happy Birthday." It was a touching moment, to be sure. In this era of economic despair, it's always heartening to see an orchestra prevailing and thriving. But pretty sentiments aside, none of this would really amount to much without an orchestra that doesn't merely talk the talk. And the GPO most definitely can walk the walk.
at Positive Motions Concert

Though chilly weather and a strong downpour met the audience at the First Baptist Church of Glendale on Sunday night, the music making inside was anything but cold. Hot and intense playing were the hallmarks of the concert with cellist Ruslan Biryukov leading the way. Biryukov, executive director of the Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra (GPO), was the linchpin of the evening: lead cellist in the first half of the night with the Los Angeles Cello Quartet and cellist for the GPO String Quartet in the second half.
If there was a disunity of mood between both halves of the concert - one half musical lollipops, the other comprised of modern works that seemed to unsettle some of the bluehairs in the audience - it was at least fused together by way of the virtuoso playing of Biryukov and his crew.
