Concert Details

Inspired by Lev Tolstoy’s famous book “War and Peace”, this programme introduces works created during and shortly after World War II by three former Soviet Union composers. The music of the Russian composer S. Prokofiev, the Armenian composer A. Khachaturian, and the Ukrainian-Jewish composer D. Klebanov, whose home countries experience war again, will bring us to the world of these countries’ people, full of suffering and hope for peace.

A portion of ticket sale proceeds for this concert will go to a relief fund supporting the people of Ukraine.

We would like to encourage everyone to support the people of Ukraine, suffering from the war there, by making donations individually to one of the organizations, agencies and funds, accepting donations for this cause: You can find them here.
