Mikhail Matyushin, Painterly-Musical construction, 1923

To mark the 20th anniversary of The Cambridge Russian-Speaking Society would like to invite you to a concert of Russian music delivered by musicians who have cultural links to Russia and the Russian-Speaking community in the UK.

Music is a universal language of intercultural communication, which helps to promote better understanding, peace and build stronger communities.

Russian-speaking musicians have made a sound contribution to the world of music over the years and continue to do so, whilst living and working across the borders – towards strengthening the shared cultural capital and fostering humanity.

This is a special opportunity to celebrate the legacy of Russian music heritage which will be delivered by artists of different backgrounds and generations to

the diverse Cambridge community. The artists share a passion for music and belief that it can serve as a strong medium of inspiration, empathy and reconciliation.

The artists kindly responded to our call for performers to make their contribution to the programme of Russian music celebration with their selected pieces by prominent Russian composers as well as their own creations.

Please join us to mark this special occasion and meet the artists who will share their personal insights into their chosen pieces.

In the programme:

Mily Balakirev
Edison Denisov
Alexander Glazunov
Mikhail Glinka
Sergei Prokofiev
Sergei Rachmaninov
Alexander Scriabin
Dmitri Shostakovich as well as pieces by contemporary composers.
