Part of: Concerts and Music
Elisabeth Adkins, violin, Igor Zubkovsky, cello, Anna Ouspenskaya, piano will perform selection of the most beloved Russian ballets commissioned by Sergei Diaghlev.The many great composers Diaghilev worked with served to distinguish his ballets from other 19th-century ballets, for which the music had usually been provided by less distinguished and inspired composers. Diaghilev commissioned many original scores, and borrowed freely from the existing musical canon. This concert is a potpourri of the most beloved of these works.
Please note, this concert takes place offsite at The Levine School of Music, located on Upton Street, NW.
Hillwood is delighted to present this program in parntership with The Levine School of Music during their 2012-2013 season. In recognition of Hillwood founder Marjorie Post’s philanthropic support of classical music and the museum’s comprehensive collection of Russian Imperial art, Levine and Hillwood will offer two performances featuring Russian Composers.
