Pushkin House is pleased to present a two day screening marathon of the Soviet Cult Classic Seventeen Moments of Spring and accompanied events. The 1972 Soviet espionage TV series 'Seventeen Moments of Spring' with its haunting score and songs are rightly some of the most famous and well loved in Russian cinematic history. Yet inexplicably, they remain virtually unknown outside the Russian community and a small group of cognoscienti in the West. This special weekend at Pushkin House aims to help change that with a series of unique events.
Mikael Tariverdiev, author of the haunting score for Seventeen Moments of Spring was one of the greatest modern Soviet film composers. The score, which is held to have helped elevate the series to its unprecedented success, remains one of the most popular works of film music. For this very special event, Vera Tariverdieva, Mikael's widow and the guardian of his legacy, will join Alex Kan and Stephen Coates in conversation to provide a rare and intimate glimpse into the life and work of a modern musical genius. This event is part of the Pushkin House Seventeen Moments of Spring Two Day Marathon.

Over the centuries, many famous Russians have spent a lot of time in Italy. Dostoyevsky loved Florence, Chekov travelled all over Italy, and Gorky spent many years there, mainly in Capri and Sorrento. During the tasting, we’ll follow in the footsteps of these great people and learn about the wines they used to drink or could have drunk. We’ll talk about the history of Italian wine and taste the styles of wines traditionally produced in the areas popular with Russians, both past and present. This event is devoted to 150th anniversary of the birth of M. Gorky.
