After the Thaw
02/24/2010 at 08:00 PM – Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center
We don’t mean the weather. Stalin’s death resulted among other things in a blossoming of new musical compositions, full of ideas and innovations that shortly before would have resulted in a trip to Siberia. If you liked ASO’s 2008 concert Russian Futurists about composers who briefly thrived just before Stalin came to power, you’ll want to hear what happened to Soviet music after his iron grip was finally loosened.
Enjoy an illuminating pre-concert discussion with Maestro Leon Botstein
