Although totally forgotten today, Muscovite Iosif Genishta was a renowned composer and pianist in his day. His artistic friendships included Alexander Pushkin, Princess Volkonskaya, Robert Schumann and Hector Berlioz when the latest visited Russia. He was also active as a teacher and organiser of musical events: the earliest performances in Russia of Beethoven's piano concertos were the result of his skills as a promoter of large-scale musical events. Most probably a cellist himself, Genishta wrote three cello sonatas, reminiscent in style to early Beethoven. The second one was particularly praised by Schumann.

This concert is part of Pushkin House Russian Music Festival 2021 with all concerts recorded in our 18th century home, ‘premiered’ online then available to watch on demand. The rare programme of the Festival can be enjoyed through a festival pass or through booking individual concert tickets. The Festival Pass gives you access to all the concerts and events being premiered between 2 and 14 March 2021, for one month after the premiere date. Individual ticket holders will be able to access the concert and content on demand for once week from the premiere date.

Early Bird Festival Pass £75 available until 15 February; thereafter £97. The pass includes an exclusive talk and Q&A on Russian Chamber Music with Philip Ross Bullock, professor of Russian Literature and Music at the University of Oxford and Alexander Karpeyev, the Pushkin House Music Festival artistic director.
