Vysotsky in English: A Performance by Vadim Astrakhan

Vladimir Vysotsky, though hugely popular in Russia, is almost unknown in the rest of the world. Against this injustice stands US-based singer-songwriter Vadim Astrakhan and his long-running project translating Vysotsky’s songs into English. Now Astrakhan, on tour in Europe, brings ‘Vysotsky in English’ to the UK, hosted by Pushkin House. This promises to be a cheerful and original event, where English-speakers can hear and learn about Russia’s bard, and Russians can enjoy his music from a new perspective.

Victory Day Concert: Mazaika Duo: War Songs

Igor Outkine – vocal, one-man band accordion
Sarah Harrison – domra, violin

The single best way to mark День Победы in London.  Igor Outkine and Sarah Harrison share war songs known and loved by all Russians at home and abroad. A number of highly talented composers and poets were among their authors, and no Soviet family get-together could pass without singing them. And as with all war songs, while the lyrics were engendered by war, their shared theme is a longing for peace.
