The Four Most Popular World War II Songs (Email from 16th April 2016)

Dear All

Please see details of the next Pushkin Club event below.




The Four Most Popular World War II Songs and Their Dramatic Stories:
Pushkin Club - 7.30 pm, Tuesday, 19th April

The dramatic stories of four World War II Songs which span time and
space. These stories begin in different countries and  different
centuries and carry on for a long time after Victory Day, right up to
the 21st Century. In addition to these Songs, three more musical pieces
will be performed. These are the favourite dances of the 19th and first
half of the 20th Century – a mazurka, tango and waltz composed by the
respective masters of each style. We will talk about nine of the people
who are known to have contributed to the creation of the Songs. In
reality, there were more – they are truly 'the unknown soldiers'.

The music will be provided by Nadia Giliova (piano) and Lila Moshtael
(vocals).   Alla Gelich will read three poems in Russian. The text of
the songs, in Russian and English, will be available. David Brummell
will introduce the evening and provide the accompanying narrative.

The link below provides more details of this Pushkin Club event, to
which all are welcome.
