About this Event

The Heart & Soul of Russia

Scriabin Etudes, Preludes & a Sonata

Rachmaninoff Études Tableaux, Moments Musicaux

Prokofiev Sarcasms, Op. 17

Kreisler-Rachmaninoff Liebesleid

We often think of Russian pianism as being virtuosic. Russian Late Romantic music does require ferocious technical mastery, but the heart of this celebrated style is its deep lyricism. Among Russian performers gracing the American concert stage today, there is no more poetic a figure than Olga Vinokur. Her passionate commitment to the rich, subtle scores of Rachmaninoff, Medtner, and Scriabin is justifiably famous. She also brings a depth and finely chiseled intellect to early moderns like Prokofiev that takes your breath away. Join us for a rare pianistic and artistic encounter, a true revelation. Wine reception to follow.

Age 18 and under admitted for free. Cash or credit card accepted at the door.
