SORROW OF LOVE, JOY OF LOVE


Love Songs of the Great Entertainers.

Described by the Los Angeles Times as an “extravagantly transgressive tenor" with "a stratospheric voice,” Kazakh-American vocalist TIMUR will pay a unique musical tribute to such charismatic Russian performers as Alexander Vertinsky, Ivan Kozlovsky, Sergei Lemeshev and Vadim Kozin. Accompanied by pianist Genadi Zagor, who will also perform solo improvisations, TIMUR will sing a rare selection of romantic melodies from the songbooks of these legendary entertainers, who captivated opera, concert hall and cabaret audiences throughout the 20th century.
