Guitar and Jazz Virtuoso Bireli Lagrene Plays Moscow

September 18 & 19

The acknowledged master of gypsy jazz, dazzling guitarist Bireli Lagrene was born a Sinti Gypsy in the Alsace border region between France and Germany. He left his gypsy roots to play fusion and straight ahead jazz, and now plays a cornucopia of styles ranging from jazz to big band that incorporate rock and Brazilian elements. Early in his career, his creative playing style evoked comparisons with Django Reinhardt. At thirty-five, Bireli has decided to take a brave step forward by playing the music of the past.

If you want to be soothed by Lagrenes magic guitar, get on down to Dom Soyouzov, 1 Bolshaya Dmitrovka, m. Teatralnaya, Tel. 292 0736 on September 18 at 7pm or to Club Marika, 21 Petrovka, m. Pushkinskaya, Tel. 924 0358 on September 19 at 8pm. Order tickets by phone at 933 3200 or go to


Matisse Dances Over to the Pushkin Museum

September 9 - November 11 

Experience the magic of Henri Matisse and "The Dance," on loan from the Paris Museum of Modern Art. This inspirational piece completed in 1933 not to be confused with Matisses other famous The Dance that he painted two decades earlier and hangs in St. Petersburgs Hermitage Museum reflects Matisses selfproclaimed "agonistic" character. Originally commissioned by American collector Albert Barnes to decorate a room at the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, when Matisse was almost done it came to the fore that he had been given the wrong dimensions of the wall for which the painting was intended and he had to hastily create a second version. Today the completed painting awaits you at the Pushkin Museum. Let its bright colors and sensual lines seduce you.

At the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, 12 Volkhonka, m. Kropotkinskaya, Tel. 203 9574. Open every day from 10am to 6pm, except Monday.
