Dating back to Tchaikovsky's monumental Piano Trio written in honor of his friend and nationally treasured pianist Nikolai Rubinstein, Russian composers have used musical composition as a means of accepting tragedy. Medtner, whom Rachmaninoff considered to be the greatest composer of his time, wrote his Sonata-Reminiscenza after being forced to leave his home in the wake of the Russian revolution in 1917.

Join the artists for a post-concert question & answer session immediately following the performance.
