Art of Time Ensemble
Russia in Exile
-An eclectic collection of Russian music from Stravinsky to Prokofiev-
Hear the music and the stories behind the music
The acclaimed Art of Time Ensemble, under the artistic direction of Andrew Burashko, not only plays music, they tell the stories behind the music.
RUSSIA IN EXILE, a special concert featuring an eclectic collection of Russian music runs April 20-21 at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.
Several of Russia's most celebrated composers abandoned or spent much of their productive lives outside of their homeland: genius Igor Stravinsky left Russia for Paris in 1910 and died in New York in 1988, leaving behind a canon of some of the greatest works in classical music; Sergei Prokofiev fled the Revolution in 1918 for the West, and electrified audiences of the 20th century. Discover exquisite works by these composers and their exiled countrymen
Discover exquisite works by these composers and their exiled countrymen, and hear the extraordinary circumstances of their lives.
Accompanied by a live film mix by Tess Girard, Russia in Exile features some of the greatest musicians in Canada: Barry Shiffman and Benjamin Bowman, Violin; Steven Dann, Viola; Thomas Wiebe, Cello; Joseph Phillips, Double Bass; Andrew Burashko, Piano.
.Art of Time earlier this season performed I Send You This Cadmium Red for Canadian Stage. The Globe and Mail’s J. Kelly Nestruck hailed it as “One of the Top 11 of 2011.” Maclean’s Brian D. Johnson declared it “extraordinary…. lush and mesmerizing.” Michael Crabb in The Toronto Star said, “the results are enthralling” and the Toronto Sun’s John Coulbourn called that same performance “compelling…. an evening of deep passion.”
