Join us in the main gallery of The Museum of Russian Art for a celebration of classical and contemporary works for flute and piano.  These three renowned musicians join together to create an incredible evening of music.

Known as one of Russia’s best musical ambassadors, internationally acclaimed flutist Maxim Rubtsov has been called “miraculous,” “superb,” “absolutely impeccable” and “one of the best flutists of the Modern Age.”  Rubtsov is the Principal Flutist of the Russian National Orchestra who frequently performs in chamber ensembles and as a soloist.

Award-winning flutist and active teacher and clinician, Diane Boyd Schultz is currently principal flute of the Orchestra of the Pines and flutist of the Stone Fort Wind Quintet and has also performed as principal flutist of the Terre Haute Symphony and with the Shreveport Symphony and Dallas Bach Society Orchestras.

The two flutists began an exchange of musical cultures in 2009 when Rubtsov was a guest artist in the University of Alabama’s Celebrity Series.  The duo became the stars of Chris Brubeck’s jazz musical Hermitage Cats Save the Day, which premiered in 2013 at the University of Alabama and at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Joining the duo’s first Minneapolis appearance is TMORA’s Curator of Music and renowned pianist, Denis Evstuhin.  Hailed as “one of the finest pianists in the young generation,” Denis Evstuhin has earned international acclaim for his vibrant artistry, remarkable sound quality and brilliant virtuosity by audiences and critics alike. His “sonorous, dark sound, clear textures, a fine sense of balance and an elegance of line” together with his ability to find “the expressive heart of each piece even as he made crisp and fluent work of the technical demands,” have prompted critics to hail the Russian pianist as “a true artist” and “a natural musician” who has “virtuosity tempered with an old-world style…”

Thank you to the Russian Arts Foundation and Schmitt Music for their generous support!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and a grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation.
