MUSIC Moscow comes alive in winter with city denizens heading to the ice rink at Gorky Park, or sipping mulled wine at cafes along Tverskaya Ulitsa. But this season, culture fiends also will be making a beeline for the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, where for one month each year, the institution holds concerts featuring music to match the mood of the current exhibit. This time around, it’s an historic retrospective of British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner, funded entirely by Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov (known for being the largest single shareholder of Britain’s Arsenal soccer team). To complement Turner’s work, groups including the Zukerman Chamber Players and the Hesperion XXI will perform selections from Benjamin Britten and Edward Elgar, as well as compositions linked to Venice, one of Turner’s favorite subjects.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
