No Man’s Land: an evening of evocative chamber music from Russia 


Tue 14 April 2015 @ 6.30pm at Australian National Academy of Music, South Melbourne.

Featuring some of Melbourne’s finest and most vibrant instrumentalists and filmmaker Agatha Yim, No Man’s Land reflects on the horrors of 1905’s ‘Bloody Sunday’ that sparked the revolution that affected the world and reshaped Russian music and art, giving rise to the avant-garde. This performance celebrates the music of Scriabin, Glazunov, Pasternak, Stravinsky and Shostakovich in the first of three concerts as part of Justin’s ANAM Fellowship Project that seeks to explore music that is intimately connected to the political and social climate of Russia in the early part of the Twentieth Century.
