Anastasia Seifetdinova (piano) and Rita Mitsel (oboe) will present a concert of classical music at the Museum of Russian Icons.

The “Jewish art music” movement originated at the end of the 19th century in Russia and developed a new, characteristically Jewish genre of classical music. This concert features four prominent composers of the movement (Joseph Achron, Solomon Rosowsky, Alexander Krein and Pesach Lvov), as well as several works by Mieczyslaw Weinberg, a lesser-known Polish-Russian composer who is slowly being rediscovered as a 20th-century genius.

Anastasia Seifetdinova gave her first solo piano recital at age 11, went on to win numerous international competitions, and now performs around the world in solo concertos with orchestras, in solo recitals and with chamber ensembles. She is currently on the faculty of the New England Conservatory.

Rita Mitsel, principal oboe of Symphony C and Glens Falls Symphony, earned her doctorate from Juilliard. She has taught at The New School and Queens College, performed with orchestras across the U.S. and recorded with International Contemporary Ensemble for the Naxos label.
