Seamlessly blending theatre and music, actress Kseniya Rappoport and pianist Polina Osetinskaya bring Ivan Bunin’s An Unknown Friend to life. Inspired by Bunin’s correspondence to an admirer in Dublin, this little-known short story from the mid-1920s comprises several love letters from a married woman living in a foreign land to her favourite author – whom she’s never met. In this unique performance, Bunin’s text will be accompanied by a delicate musical programme featuring pieces from Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Fauré, alongside contemporary Russian composers Anton Batagov and Pavel Karmanov.
