The Pharos Trust
Linda Lippner

The Pharos Trust, a Cyprus-based nonprofit cultural and educational foundation dedicated to the promotion of the arts and humanities, hosted a sparkling midwinter concert at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory’s small auditorium with two outstanding Russian musicians performing the music of composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg. Born in Poland, Weinberg’s professional life was centered in Moscow during the 1940s and ’50s, a period of Stalinist artistic repression. Weinberg was a close associate of Shostakovich as well as of Rostropovich, for whom he composed and dedicated many pieces for cello. The guest artists were the award-winning Russian cellist Alexander Chaushian and pianist Alexander Ghindin. The pair have just recorded a CD of Weinberg’s sonatas for BIS. The Pharos Trust also sponsors a chamber music festival every May-July at historic Kouklia, a part of the Aphrodite Cultural Route in Cyprus. For more information on this year’s festival, visit
