October 10, 2014 | Concert | Russian Kaleidoscope

Russian Kaleidoscope

This concert is dedicated to Russian chamber vocal music that is rarely performed in the United States. While interest in Russian operas has increased over the last decades in America, Russian romances (art songs) are virtually absent from the concert halls. This repertoire is unique and prolific. The program will range from operatic arias and romances by Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninov to classical and jazz pieces for the clarinet and guitar improvisations. The music is highly expressive, lyrical and passionate, and offers a great variety of genres and emotions, making it deeply appealing to all audiences.

You will be hearing this noteworthy "Russian Kaleidoscope" performed by a group of RCAS prize-winning favorites - soprano Yana Eminova, mezzo soprano Magdalena Wor, clarinetist Julian Milkis and guitarist Sergey Khrichenko, with the accompaniment of Vera Danchenko-Stern, the RCAS founder and principal motivational force.

Magdalena Wor - Mezzo Soprano
Julian Milkis - Clarinet
Serge Khrichenko - Guitar
Vera Danchenko-Stern – Piano

A Reception will follow the concert.
