Skazki, Nikolai Medtner – with Dina Parakhina and friends – part one
23/08/2020 @ 17:00 - 18:00
A very rare and exciting opportunity to hear a complete performance of Medtner’s Skazki.
The 38 piano pieces called Skazki (which translates as “tales” or “legends” but are known as “Fairy Tales” in English at the suggestion of Medtner’s wife) contain some of his most original and appealing music and are as much a core part of his output as the piano sonatas.
We are indebted to Dina Parakhina for suggesting this programme, which will feature some of Dina’s outstanding students, both past and present. In the autumn of 2020 Dina will take this programme with her students to perform at the Moscow Conservatory.
