Description

The third “Go / Hear” program takes us to Russia, with passionate music by Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky, Dmitri Shostakovich’s soulful, intense Piano Trio (with the Claremont Trio), and Sergei Prokofiev’s raucous Overture on Hebrew Themes (with Alan Kay, clarinet). In between the musical selections, marvel at art from the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg and views of Rachmaninoff’s country estate, Ivanovka.
