Steeped in Russia’s rich musical heritage, Peace Center Artist-in-Residence Igor Begelman presents a special Peace Interlude dedicated to Sergei Prokofiev and Alexander Glazunov. Both musical masters will be featured in the Russian National Orchestra performance on February 18 at the Peace Center.

In 1904, Prokofiev was introduced to Glazunov, a professor at the renowned Saint Petersburg Conservatory. Prokofiev later enrolled at the school. For Begelman, Glazunov and Prokofiev were the giants he looked up to in his own musical studies in the Soviet Union. Join Begelman on an expedition to the past as he explores and deconstructs the rise of great Russian music through the works of these two prolific geniuses.


Hosted by Peace Center Artist-in-Residence Igor Begelman.

Peace Chamber is sponsored by Campbell Young Leaders.
