This year’s annual winter concert features the talented and brilliant concert pianist Ivan Gusev. In his first full-length performance at the Museum, Gusev presents an all-Russian program featuring Scriabin, Tchaikovsky, and Mussorgsky’s ten-piece suite, “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Born in Kazakhstan, he spent his early childhood there before his parents relocated to a small town near Moscow, Russia to continue his musical training. A graduate of the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory and Mannes School of Music in New York, Gusev very naturally combines different performing traditions in his performances. As musicologist Prof. Allan Evan once described, “he is a profound, genuine musician who makes each note live and transports you to another existence.” In November 2018 he performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall to a sold-out audience. This concert is presented with support from Sound Ways, Inc. and the Greater Worcester Community Foundation.
