To several generations of Russians, Vladimir Vysotsky (1938-1980), is the undisputed Bard of Russia and one of the most beloved figures in the pantheon of Russian culture. His songs appeal to people of all backgrounds and seem to tell everything there is to know about Soviet Russia.
Join Solomon Volkov and other panelists who will discuss Vladimir Vysotsky’s art and life at 92 Street Y. This event is part of the Russian Sundays series.
