January 7, 2019 – Musical Responses to Oppression – JCC in Tarrytown, NY

10:00-11:30am Lecture-Performance Musical Responses to Oppression through the music of Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Gershwin

In this lecture program we explore three astonishingly different works:

Prokofiev’s Sonata in D Major Op.94a written during the middle of WWII when he was protectively sequestered by Soviet authorities, deep in the Ural Mountains; Preludes Op. 34 by Shostakovich, written when his life seemed to be hanging by a thread under Stalin’s displeasure; and Jasha Heifetz’s arrangements from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

 with Oxana Mikhailoff, Piano

February 17, 2018 3pm – It’s all about Love!

You will love this program! In fact, we feel that the music on this program really is all about Love.
There is something for everyone: Rachmaninoff’s expression of Romantic Love, Beethoven’s Love from the Celestial Realms, Jascha Heifetz’s beloved transcription of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Shostakovich’s almost painfully beautiful Preludes.  And, yes, we agree with you: opposites attract!  Shem Guibbory, Violin with Oxana Mikhailoff, Piano and Robert Burkhart, Cello
Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata
Gershwin/Heifetz Porgy and Bess
Shostakovich/Tziganov Preludes from Op. 34
Beethoven Trio Op 97 Archduke
