Ballades, Fantasies, & Satires to Love and Inspire

Why limit your love to Valentine's Day?   Make a date for February 27, 2015,  the first concert of 2015 for the Russian Chamber Art Society, for an evening to remember! Held at the Embassy of Austria, this exciting and diversified collection of Russian vocal and piano music will warm your heart and launch your imagination.

The performance will focus on the work of Shostakovich, arguably the greatest Russian composer born in the 20th century, using the poetry of Burns, Shakespeare and Raleigh.  It will be the Washington Premiere for two of his works:  "To the Poems of English Poets" and "Satires."  Other composers include GlinkaDargomyzhsky, and Rachmaninov (Piano Interlude).  The dazzling offerings will be performed byNatalia Kraevsky, soprano; 

Grigory Soloviov, bass; Alexander Shtarkman, piano; and of course, Vera Danchenko-Stern, piano.

A dessert and wine reception follow the performance to sweeten the evening even more.
