Pianist Nikolai Choubine opens 10th Anniversary Series

In a recital entitled “Glories of the Piano’s Golden Age,” Nikolai Choubine launched the 10th Anniversary Season of the Lyell Gustin Recital Series. Describing his repertoire as “jewels of Romantic piano literature,” the artist included a significant representation of music from his native Russia. It was a special pleasure for the audience to hear Mussorgsky’s entire “Pictures at an Exhibition” in the original piano version. The pre-concert chat was given by Rika Asai Choubine, a native of Saskatoon and a musical descendant of Lyell Gustin.
