Victory Day Concert
Wednesday 9 May
Concert dedicated to the Victory Day
Favourite Russian Songs from the War Years
Igor Outkine – vocal, accordion
Sarah Harrison – violin, domra
These songs are known and loved by everybody in Russia and abroad. A number of highly talented composers and poets were among their authors, and no Soviet family get-together could pass without these songs being sung by all of the guests. Words of these songs, of course, entirely generated by the war, but at the forefront of them – not war, but the world that they are supposed to save.
