World-renowned Russian pianist and harpsichordist Alexei Lubimov will present a special one-off performance at Pushkin House which is sure to be the highlight of the 20 th anniversary concert series ‘Heritage of Russian Pianism’ Soirée Musicale.
Lubimov thrills audiences worldwide with a diverse programme encompassing everything from Mozart to Stockhausen.
The evening will be followed by a post-concert champagne reception.
The 20 th anniversary concert series is organised by MCS Young Artists’ Fund to promote tomorrow’s generation of musicians.
The concert is not suitable for children under the age of 6.
Born and raised in Russia, Alexei Lubimov studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Heinrich Neuhaus and Lew Naumov. Lubimov was prevented from leaving the Soviet Union because of his strong commitment to western music. His repertoire ranges from traditional European classical music to experimental modern composers, such as John Cage, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez and Arnold Shoenberg. Lubimov founded the Moscow Baroque Quartet and the Moscow Chamber Academy. He also created the music festival 'Alternativa'. In 2013, Alexei Lubimov released a recording of Beethoven 'Moonlight - Waldstein - Storm'.
