HIGH DAYS and HOLIDAYS – CENTENARY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
With ‘Russian’ Savilians Artem Kotov (violin) and Alexander Karpeyev (piano) playing music of Russian composers with works of circa 1917, together with Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne – taken from the Diaghilev ballet Pulcinella …. Following the Revolution of 1917, the Diaghilev ballet left Russia and was based mainly in Europe.
Dr David Burke, author, will be the club’s guest – talking about The Lawn Road Flats –developed by Savilian
Jack Pritchard – which became home to an extraordinary community of Russian spies as a consequence of the Revolution. A number of other Savilians lived at the flats – notably sculptor Henry Moore. Agatha Christie also lived there.
A suitably Russian menu will be devised for the occasion, with a few shots of vodka to complement the wine.
