Event 06: York Early Music Christmas Festival

Russian Winter & Gypsy Fire

Super-trio Koshka – Oleg Ponomarev and Lev Atlas violins and Nigel Clark guitar – bring a seasonal flavour from Russia. Vibrant and enthralling combining conservatoire rigour with sheer, wild Gypsy flair (plus more than a touch
of wit and innovation) their music is interspersed with tales and anecdotes of the traditions of winter and Christmas in their native Russia. With a new album since their first visit to the NCEM, Koshka stands at the cutting edge of Gypsy music, taking it to increasingly dizzy heights of invention and creativity.
