Postcards from Eastern Europe



Travel across Europe with Ukranian-Australian, mother-son duo Markiyan and Oksana in an evening of miniature showpieces for violin and piano written by Hungarian, Polish, Ukranian and Russian composers.

Experience the region’s love of lyricism and dance with Stravinksy’s ‘Russian Dance’ from Petrushka, Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise and pieces by Wieniawski, Karabyts, Glière and more.
