PUSHKIN’S LOVE LYRICS: PUSHKIN CLUB – 7.00 pm, TUESDAY, 26 FEBRUARY, PUSHKIN HOUSE

An evening in English and Russian hosted by the Pushkin Club, devoted to Pushkin’s love lyrics.  This will include Pushkin’s most popular love poems, amongst others –

I loved you: in my heart, perhaps…; To*** (That moment comes to me again); and My beauty, do not sing to me… 

The poems will be recited in Russian by Alla Gelich and read in English translation by two guest readers, Lucy Daniels and Penelope Dimond.

Many of Pushkin’s love poems were set to music by Russian composers, and two of these will be performed by the singer/guitarist, Lila Milone and Julian Milone (violin).

The English translations, which will be provided with the programme, are by Antony Wood, D.M Thomas, David and Lyudmila Matthews and David Brummell.

The evening will be introduced by David Brummell, who will explain how the poems that are to be read related to different stages of Pushkin’s life.

This is a Pushkin Club event and all are welcome.

Please note that this event will be taking place on Tuesday, 26 February (not 26 March, as is wrongly stated in the Pushkin House Newsletter of 14 February).
