Winter Concert

Saturday January 21, 2017


8:00 p.m.



50 SHADES


OF SNOW


A Wintry Collage of Music for the Season



For our 2017 winter concert, the American Balalaika Symphony has chosen a theme that could hardly be more appropriate for the season: SNOW!  Drawn almost entirely from Russian composers of both concert and popular music, the program depicts snow and snowfalls in all their many “shades” and aspects, from swirling wind-driven snowflakes, to dashing through the wintry countryside behind a three-horse troika, to the peaceful repose of moonlit fields and forests after a fresh snowfall. Are there really “50 shades of snow”? Well, perhaps, but as celebrated film critic Roger Ebert once wrote,

 

                  “The very fact of snow is such an amazement.”

Combining the rich traditions of the Russian Music School with the best of European and American music, founder, artistic director, and conductor Peter Trofimenko has created a unique American orchestra.

Each concert season the American Balalaika Symphony performs a stunning range of music — from beloved Russian folk melodies to classical favorites to rarely heard symphonic masterpieces, often with prominent virtuoso soloists from around the world.
