Boris Pasternak, the celebrated Russian poet and Nobel Prize-winning author of Doctor Zhivago, was also an aspiring musician in his early years. Raised in aristocracy, Pasternak's mother was a renowned concert pianist, and Scriabin and Rachmaninoff were frequent visitors to their dacha. This concert offers a rare opportunity to hear his only surviving compositions and enjoy poetic interludes by special literary guests.
