CLoSer: Émigré – Ljova
City of London Sinfonia and Ljova violin/viola
Join City of London Sinfonia for this modern-day tale of immigration from Russian to the USA with music by New York composer and musician, Ljova. Coming from a family who moved from Moscow to New York as communism fell in 1990, Ljova’s unique musical voice combines classical music with his own blend of Russian folk, jazz, Balkan gypsy and Klezmer. Performing on viola and violin alongside the Orchestra, this exciting CLoSer concert sees Ljova bring his haunting and exciting music to East London.
This unique performance is part of CLS’s informal concert series CLoSer, which is designed to appeal to those who like their music live, intimate and relaxed (and who enjoy a glass of wine while listening!).
