Russia 1917: The hundred years that changed the world
The partnership between Unipol Group and Music Together Foundation, united by an educational commitment and the desire to create initiatives with significant cultural value, continued once again in 2017. This year is the hundredth anniversary of the October Revolution and for the occasion a review entitled "Russia 1917- the hundred years that changed the world" which exalted the verses of Russian poets - Pasternak, Cvetaeva, Esenin and Majakovskij - protagonists in an epocal world event, was put on show for the public.
During the four appointments at the Unipol Auditorium the figures and personalities of these poets were illustrated through their words, written precisely in those revolutionary years, loaded with hope and disappointment, full of pain, but also of life and music. The works of composers who experienced, just like them, the dramatic events of that period, accompanied the verses.
The reading of texts was entrusted to Luigi Lo Cascio, one of the most highly considered Italian actors (we remind you of One hundred steps and The Best Youth). The music was played by pianist Alexander Romanovsky, who was joined on each occasion by the splendid voice of Olga Peretyatko-Mariotti, the violinist Alexandra Soumm and the violoncellist Miriam Prandi.
