Красивая русская музыка
We had several requests following last season’s very successful Russian Evening and so are pleased to offer another Russian Classical Romantic evening featuring the young Estonian Pianist Maksim Štšura in a performance of Rachmaninoff’s second piano concerto. You will also hear Rachmaninoff’s second symphony and Glinka’s Ruslan and Ludmilla overture. Beautiful Russian Music not to be missed.
