NOW FEATURING

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING

he daughter of classical instru-
mentalists played musical
matchmaker, and the resulting
duo soon will perform in Oak Park.
Eliza Agrest, just graduated from
Brandeis University in Massachusetts,
heard music all her life as her mother,
Rozolita Mikulinsky Agrest, worked
with the violin and her father, Alex
Agrest, mastered the viola.
As soon as Eliza heard pianist
Maxim Lubarsky in a performance,
she suggested that he work with her
mother and have her dad manage the
two musicians.
After a successful tryout, everyone
involved agreed to teaming up, and the
duo developed a concert program and
recording, A Musical Journey: From
Mozart to Gershwin, that will tour to
the Oak Park Jewish Community
Center 5 p.m. Sunday, June 15.
The concert is sponsored by the
Russian Acculturation Program at the
JCC, a grant from the Area Agency on
Aging for Refugee
Outreach/Education and a gift from
Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Grand.
"Maxim loves jazz, and he has
brought that to the classics," says
Alex Agrest, who plays with the
Charleston Symphony Orchestra
along with his wife.
"We've found that their style togeth-
er appeals to a wide audience, and we
hope their working together will be a
way to bring young people to the con-
cert halls."
Among the pieces to be played at
the JCC are a Mozart rondo, Kreisler's
Syncopation and Kern's "Smoke Gets
in Your Eyes."
The Agrest family, living in the
United States for 13 years and settled
into South Carolina, also developed
Russian Artistic Serenade, a manage-
ment company that arranges book-
ings, from concert hall shows to pri-
vate parties, for musicians from the
former Soviet Union.

T

discretion was not my middle name. I
mean, I assure you if anything had
gone on between the two of us, you
would not have had to wait this long
to find it out."

Basketball coach LARRY BROWN,
62, who has signed a five-year, $25-
million contract to coach the Detroit
Pistons, replacing the fired Rick
Carlisle, is a member of the Jewish
Sports Hall of Fame in Israel. This

While their daughter, who concen-
trated on biology and Jewish studies, is
about to enter the Medical University
of South Carolina, their son, Mikhail,
works as a conductor of opera and bal-
let theater in St. Petersburg and does
international touring.
"My wife and Maxim mix smooth
phrasing when they work together,"
Agrest says.
Mikulinsky Agrest, born in St.
Petersburg, began studying violin at 6,
the year of her first public perform-
ance. She studied and taught at the St.
Petersburg State Conservatory, where
she earned her doctoral degree and
remained available for concert engage-
ments.
After moving to the United States,
the violinist performed with chamber
groups and in solo recitals. She cur-
rently is the concertmaster of the
Pawleys Island Chamber and Pops
Orchestra.
Lubarsky, a Ukraine native, studied
at the Odessa State Conservatory and
went on to the Berklee College of
Music in Massachusetts, where he
won two scholarships. A jazz pianist
before coming to America, he won
first place in competitive jazz events in
his country of origin.
"Very good fortune brought Maxim
and me together," says Mikulinsky
rest. "While performing, Maxim
improvises his own arrangements,
enriching the music with a unique
sound that defines his style. My hope
is that we will have opportunities to
continue our collaboration for many
years to come."
— Suzanne Chessler

"A Musical Journey: From Mozart
to Gershwin" will be performed 5
p.m. Sunday, June 15, at the Oak
Park Jewish Community Center.
