(Pre-Concert lecture by musicologist, Dr. Lisa Yui)
World-class musicians, Oxana Mikhailoff and Vassily Primakov will play Sonatas by Schumann. They have known each other for nearly 30 years. Both spent their formidable years at the Moscow State Conservatory under the tutelage of the legendary professor, Vera Gornostaeva. Sharing these experiences created an unbreakable bond between these two pianists that inspires them to perform such substantial programs educating and entertaining their audiences.
