What You'll Do
Virtuoso violinist Stanislav Antonévich and pianist Leo Loginov Katz have received international acclaim for their musical talents, but both overcame obstacles to find success: Raised in the former Soviet Union, child prodigy Stanislav made the decision to expand beyond his classical training and into the genre of jazz. His music partner Leo faced his own obstacles in the Russian establishment, which celebrated traditional styles over jazz and improvisation. Head to Stanislav’s intimate violin studio on the Charles River to hear their fascinating stories as you share Russian pastries and tea with the musicians, then settle in for an incredible jazz concert from true masters of the field.

Stan Antonevich and Leo Katz
Both Stanislav Antonévich and Leo Katz challenged the musical norm in order to become the renowned jazz performers they are today: having been raised in environments that focused on the classical music conventions, each went on to capitalize on the genre of jazz. Virtuoso violinist Stanislav currently runs his own studio, in addition to having earned a master’s degree in both classical and jazz, and winning prestigious international awards, including first prize at the International Dvarionas Violin Competition. Leo, an acclaimed pianist, has a background in theater, composing music for movies and playing at rock and jazz festivals, in addition to producing concerts at places like The Lincoln Center and the Steinway Hall in NYC.
