Live at Russell Library

Here's a good-looking and potentially fine sounding concert tip from The Russell Library:

This Saturday (December 1), violinist Emil Altschuler and pianist Artem Belogurov will perform Danzas EspaƱolas. This beautiful and fiery program explores the works of composers such as Falla, Ravel, and Poulenc who were inspired by the music and historical events of Spain.

One of America’s finest up and coming virtuoso violinists, Emil Altschuler (pictured above) performs at a world class standard and possesses a commanding stage presence. He holds degrees from Juilliard School and Yale School of Music.  Master violinist, Erick Friedman, wrote of him: '...a very gifted violinist who possesses the talent and capability to become a truly outstanding violinist of his generation...and sound and accuracy of intonation that are truly extraordinary.”

Pianist Artem Belogurov (pictured left) is a rising young artist whose lively and expressive performances have delighted audiences in the United States and Europe.  He received his early training at the Stolyarsky School of Music in Odessa, Ukraine and his Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from the New England Conservatory in Boston.   He is currently a student of Peter Serkin.  His extensive repertoire ranges through three centuries of solo and chamber works.  Artem has been praised for his “grace, elegance and high artistry” and has given numerous solo and chamber recitals throughout the United States and Europe.

This concert takes place at 2 p.m. in the Hubbard Room and, of course, is free and open to the public.
