Concert features music of the Russian Thaw April 7

Note: This concert was originally scheduled for February 10 and was postponed due to the blizzard.

Boris Berman

Boris Berman, professor of piano at the Yale School of Music, will perform music from the “Russian Thaw” the evening of Sunday, April 7. The Thaw was a period of relative liberalization of Soviet cultural policies in the 1960s, and Berman, born in Soviet Russia, belonged to a small group of Moscow musicians that premiered pieces by young, nonconformist composers of the era.

Berman will discuss his work with figures such as Alfred Schnittke, Edison Denisov, Valentin Silvestrov, Tigran Mansurian, and Arvo Pärt, and will join with students from the Yale School of Music to perform selections from the composers’ music.

The program opens with two pieces by Edison Denisov: Ode for clarinet, percussion, and piano, and Three Pieces for cello and piano. Two pieces by Valentin Silvestrov will follow: the solo piano piece Elegy, and Postludium for cello and piano. The first half concludes with two pieces by Arvo Pärt, For Aleena for piano and Fratres for violin and piano.

The second half will open with Tigran Mansurian’s Testament for cello and piano. The program will conclude with two pieces by Alfred Schnittke: the Piano Sonata No. 2, and the Serenade for the unusual quintet of clarinet, violin, double bass, piano, and percussion.

Several YSM students will perform alongside Berman: clarinetist Gleb Kanasevich, violinist Shawn Moore, cellist James Kim, double bassist Gregory Vartian-Foss, and percussionists Garret Arney and Mari Yoshinaga.

The program takes place at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall (470 College St., corner of Wall Street). Admission is free. Click HERE to join the event on Facebook.For more information, contact the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158. MORE
