Baroque Masterpieces from Epic Films
Polina Osetinskaya makes a triumphant solo return to the United States, after a critically acclaimed appearance at Carnegie Hall with Maxim Vengerov in October 2022. For this upcoming intimate solo recital, Osetinskaya turns to a program of some of the most enduring musical masterpieces in history. With her signature virtuosity, Osetinskaya brings to life seminal works by Bach, Handel and Rameau, from epic films by Coppola, Kubrick, Tarkovsky and other luminary directors. The dramatic qualities of the music, which had once enhanced the pivotal moments in these great films, are now distilled by Osetinskaya into a thoughtful and engaging live program.
