Presented by Anglo-Russian Culture Club (ARCC)
FROM JEWISH FOLK POETRY
Dmitri Shostakovich, Op. 79
Piano: Alexey Demchenko
Soprano: Galina Averina
Mezzo-soprano: Maria Gulik
Tenor: Mikhail Shepelenko
Composed in 1948 fully aware of the Holocaust and in response to a new and brutal wave of anti-Semitism sweeping the Soviet Union, the poems describe the hard life for Jews under the Czar, allowing Shostakovich to speak about their current plight using coded allegory. The music brings to life the misery, terror and humour contained within the Jewish tradition, and makes listening to these songs a deeply moving experience.
This concert will be presented on the Stage.
