Love & Murder is the second collaboration between Malashock Dance and UCSD-TV, following 2003's Emmy-winning The Soul of Saturday Night. Love & Murder is a unique dance film about life and lifelessness a sort of cheerfully deranged Canterbury Tales told by the most unreliable narrators imaginable. Set to five songs by the incomparable Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Love & Murder is an exhilarating, seriocomic peek into the minds of those who dangerously blur the line between fantasy and reality.

Steven Schick conducts the West Coast premiere of Evan Ziporyn's Frog's Eye, a propulsive work featuring a performance by the Tijuana-based dance troupe Lux Boreal.

Beethoven's celebrated Symphony No. 5 is a cornerstone of symphonic music and an iconic artwork of Western culture. Using excerpts from the Fifth Conductor Steven Schick guides the student audience through a tour of the piece, paying particular attention to themes and variations and the methods employed by the composer to build a titanic structure upon a four-note phrase.

Giuseppe Verdi composed his "Messa da Requiem" in memory of writer and humanist Alessandro Manzoni, whom Verdi greatly admired. This monumental work for four vocal soloists, double chorus and orchestra premiered in Milan in 1874, with Verdi himself conducting. Though the Requiem enjoyed contemporary success it disappeared from the concert repertoire for a time, before being revived in the 1930s. It is now the most frequently performed major choral work, and is regarded (along with Mozart's Requiem) as the supreme composition in that genre. Recorded on 3/19/2017.

Yusef Komunyakaa, an internationally renowned poet who won the Pulitzer Prize for "Neon Vernacular: New and Selected Poems," reads and discusses his work while writer-in-residence at UC Santa Barbara. Recorded on 03/01/2017.
