Evanston - 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
The remarkable Russian Guitar Quartet is devoted to preserving the rare seven-string Russian guitar. Virtually no music for this instrument has survived, so the group has based its repertoire on transcriptions and paraphrases of orchestral, operatic, and piano music. Founder Oleg Timofeyev has focused his research, recordings, concerts, and festivals on "Moguchaia Kuchka" (The Mighty Handful), the influential "Russian Five" composers Mussorgsky, Borodin, Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Balakirev. Enjoy an unforgettable program of solos, duets, and quartets highlighting the riches of the Russian repertoire.
