Russian cellist brings one-of-a-kind arrangements to Mountain View


Ian Maksin, the Russian cellist/composer known worldwide for his eclectic, one-of-a-kind classical, pop, R&B and rock arrangements that have taken the cello well outside its conventional scope, will be in Mountain View with Serbian guitarist Goran Ivanovic on Friday, Sept. 23.

Maksin is scheduled to perform a solo set before Ivanovic joins him to play a blend of Balkan, jazz, Arabic, flamenco and classic music.

Maksin first gained international acclaim as a leading classical musician. He has since gone on to perform with a diverse group of artists ranging from P. Diddy and Snoop Dogg to Sting and Andrea Bocelli.

The performance will start at 7:30 p.m. The Samovar Hall is located at 1077 Independence Ave. Tickets are $25 in advance at samovar.ticketleap.com.
