World-renowned Russian pianist and harpsichordist Alexei Lubimov will present a special one-off performance at Pushkin House.
Lubimov thrills audiences worldwide with a diverse programme encompassing everything from Mozart to Stockhausen.
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'.
