Sparkill Concert Series: Oxana Mikhailoff & Vassily Primakov
Sun, January 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$25 - $50
Join us for a very special celebration of Russian Christmas. Acclaimed pianists Oxana Mikhailoff and Vassily Primakov will perform one piano four-hand works by Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Bortkiewicz, Mussorgsky and Tchaikovsky.
Vassily Primakov was recently called “a pianist’s pianist. He is a giant of the keyboard.” (Deseret News, Salt Lake City). Since the release of his recording of the Chopin Piano Concertos, Vassily Primakov has been hailed as a pianist of world class importance. Gramophone wrote “Primakov’s empathy with Chopin’s spirit could hardly be more complete.”
Oxana Mikhailoff was hailed in a recent review by Jon Sobel as “a titan of the Romantic Piano Literature.” Of her playing, Vladimir Feltsman said “…(Oxana Mikhailoff) is a mature and accomplished musician…Her playing has character, imagination, and is poetic. She has a strong personality and stage presence.”
The Sparkill Concert Series features sparkling and virtuosic classical piano performances in a unique gallery setting. Union Arts Center’s Quincy Hall showcases a 9′ Yamaha grand piano.
Halo and Horns Kitchen will offer delicacies and a wine-beer bar after the concert, with a special meet and greet with the musicians.
Reservations are required by January 5 for the post-concert reception. Advance concert tickets are available until 12pm the day of the performance. Concert-only tickets are available at the door for $30.
