Explore the rich and meaningful repertoire of Soviet composers such as Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Sergei Prokofiev, and Dmitri Shostakovich with an evening of chamber music played by Levine Music’s Anna Ouspensakaya, Fedor Ouspensky, and Igor Zubkovsky.
Musicians were not spared the horrors of WWII or the hardship of Stalin’s Soviet rule. They were out front in war zones, jailed, and sent to the Gulag. They struggled through the war – not just to live, but also to create.
Co-sponsored by Levine Music.
