Pushkin - Seven Olympians series

Pushkin, in the West thanks to Tchaikovsky, is indirectly revered as the creator of Eugene Onegin, in a verse novel of that name whose virtuoso poetic performance is fired by the ingeniously sprawling 14-line rhyming stanza Pushkin devised for it and whose insights into romantic love are wonderful.   But then there are his song-like poems, his chamber drama with a vast backdrop, ‘The Gipsies’, and his gripping swan-song masterpiece, ‘The Bronze Horseman’, perhaps the greatest legend ever to come out of St Petersburg.

Dostoyevsky said that although there had been other men, like Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Schiller, whose genius had been “of enormous greatness, show me just one of those great geniuses who possessed such a capacity for universal empathy as did our Pushkin”.

“Thank you for a sensational evening of Pushkin – a great performance”
