Celebrating "White Nights" of the Russian tradition, two charismatic international performers--pianist Vassily Primakov and cellist Yehuda Hanani--join forces to present a program of Russian masters Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Tchaikovsky. Tickets are $40 ($30 members). Call 413 458 0524 to order tickets. The epic cello/piano sonatas of Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev reflect the same aspects of the Russian character as seen in the great literature--melancholy, mysticism, whimsy, biting humor and torrential Romanticism--as well as the added richness of Western influence from their sojourns in Paris and New York. Tchaikovsky's Seasons for solo piano offers the signature charm, power and grandeur, and, of course, the inexhaustible reservoir of melody that produced his Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty. A sweeping view of late Russian Romanticism and Modernism through the prism of three pillars of the repertoire.
