Concerts by the Russian Chamber Art Society in Washington, DC

This concert series is dedicated to Russian chamber vocal music that is rarely performed in the United States. While interest in Russian operas has increased over the last decades in America, Russian romances (art songs) are virtually absent from the concert halls. This repertoire is unique and prolific. It encompasses music by the most famous Russian composers from the 19th century to present day, from Glinka and Tchaikovsky to Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Gavrilin, also including lyrics by the most beloved Russian poets, from Pushkin to Pasternak.
