Piano Recital: Vitaly Pisarenko

Friday 18 March, 19:00 - 20:50

The Cambridge Russian-Speaking Society (CamRuSS) is delighted to bring you a recital by Vitaly Pisarenko, a prize-winning Russian pianist based in London. This is a fundraising concert in support of our collective plea for peace. All proceeds will go to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Vitaly’s performance in Cambridge at “The Splendour of Russian Music”, a concert to mark the 20th anniversary of CamRuSS in 2019, was a great success. See our website event here.

Vitaly has kindly agreed to visit Cambridge again. He will present an outstanding programme of music by Schubert and Liszt (including some of Liszt’s transcriptions of Schubert’s Lieder) on Friday 18 March in the Chapel at Churchill College.

Let’s take this opportunity to join together as a community to support those in desperate need of food, water, shelter, healthcare and protection as a result of the war in Ukraine.
