From Baikal to Brazil

The Washington Balalaika Society will feature MUSALLIANCE with two extraordinary musicians, Peter Omelchenko (domra) and Anna Kusner (guitar). The audience will also be treated to another stunning performance by WBS's Balalaika Concertmaster, Andrei Saveliev.

MUSALLIANCE is an exciting new string duo offering virtuoso interpretations of classical, international, and folk favorites. Both Peter and Anna are exceptionally talented soloists and when they come together their musical brilliance is magnified, and musical magic fills the air! Their latest CD, Fantasy for Two, was just released.

Musical selections in "From Baikal to Brazil" span a wide geographical area. "A Tale of Lake Baikal" captures haunting images of Russia's Lake Baikal and Milhaud's "Brasileira"' reflects the rousing, bustling sound of Brazil. Svetlana Nikonova, Conductor and Artistic Director, is a graduate of Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory, St. Petersburg, Russia.
