FEBRUARY 1, 2009 – 3:00PM
CONCERT: Russian Passion
A tribute to Russia’s long history of classical music innovation, this program will transport the audience from the early romantic era at the beginning of the 19th century (Glinka, Balakirev), through the late Romantic era (Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff) to the great modernists of the early 20th century (Scriabin, Stravinsky, Prokofiev).
Russia’s proud tradition produced one of the most prominent composers in the world, Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky, one of the greatest pianists in history, Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff, one of the most innovative and most controversial of composers, Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin, the most influential composer of 20th century music, Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky, and one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev.
Back by popular demand, Russian-born pianist Damira Feldman will captivate the audience with a lively and insightful performance of works by the great Russian composers.
