We invite you to watch the premiere of a short documentary concert celebrating the iconic American music hall Carnegie Hall in New York City - on Wednesday, May 5 at 18:00 Moscow time on the Facebook pages of the US Embassy and American Center in Moscow.
This special online event will document the history of Carnegie Hall, as well as its deep legacy of presenting Russian music and musicians—beginning with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as guest conductor at the grand opening and first public performance at Carnegie Hall on May 5, 1891.
As a tribute to this important moment in U.S.-Russia cultural relations, Russian-American violinist and band leader Maxim Moston will perform a quintet version of the third movement from Tchaikovskys “Serenade for Strings.” He will also perform with Russian-American pianist Eugene Sirotkine Tchaikovsky’s Melody in E-flat major for Violin and Piano, Op. 42 (1878).
The documentary concert is produced by the Forum for Cultural Engagement with the support of Carnegie Hall and in partnership with the US Embassy and American Center in Moscow.
