Hover over image to zoom
White Nights Serenades is a major composition for the guitar, composed by Mr. Korchmar in 1990. The White Nights is a time around the summer solstice when the prolonged twilights of evening and morning merge into a night full of light. This is a special time in St. Petersburg when the city does not seem to go to sleep. The social impact of this time of the year was already well recognized at the time of Alexander Pushkin whose poem The Bronze Horseman is used by Korchmar to set the context of the music. The Bronze Horseman is the famous statue of Peter the Great situated between the St. Isaak cathedral and the Neva river in St. Petersburg, and widely accepted as a symbol of the city.
