Main Stage

The rich, often melancholy voice of the viola (that larger, lower-pitched cousin of the violin) may be ideally suited for Russian classical music. Surely the passions and the sorrows of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet would be elegantly captured by viola and piano! Young Juliet, the balcony scene, Friar Laurence, courtly dances: Prokofiev’s ballet, re-imagined, is one of three works featured in our program. We’ll also hear from Glinka and Glazunov, two Russian composers who predated Prokofiev but arose from the same cultural milieu. Join Phillip Stevens and Madoka Asari for a program of 18th and 19th century Russian classics pairing this middle voice of the string section with the piano, narrated by music historian Betsy Schwarm.
