Ilya Yakushev: Triple Anniversary

Ilya Yakushev

Triple Anniversary

Rachmaninoff, Pictures at an Exhibition, and Rhapsody in Blue

“Mr. Yakushev can do just about anything he wants.”
The New York Times

Pianist Ilya Yakushev can be hard to pin down to one style or sound, but critics and audiences alike praise his incredible artistry. For his Morris Museum debut, Yakushev pays homage to three major anniversaries of the season: Rachmaninoff’s 150th birthday, the 150th anniversary of Mussorgsky’s Tour de Force, Pictures at an Exhibition, and the 100th anniversary of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Yakushev creates a feast for the eyes and ears with a multi-media presentation of Pictures at an Exhibition that illuminates the storied piano suite.
