Music, War, and Revolution: Part 2

Silenced: Composers in Revolutionary Russia
Thursday, April 22, 2021 3 PM Online
“Every creative person in the Soviet Union was a victim of the regime,” says writer and musicologist Levon Hakobian in the opening moments of Anne-Kathrin Peitz’s Silenced: Composers in Revolutionary Russia. While many artists were fleeing the Soviet regime, others decided to stay and attempt to create a new world—but the authorities’ repressive stance on liberty of expression and creative output made this a nearly impossible task. Musicians Gidon Kremer, Andreas Seidel, and Igor Vorobyov offer their commentary over a soundtrack by forgotten figures like Nikolai Roslavets, Alexander Mosolov, and Arthur Lourié—victims of state censure whose work has faded from memory.

Available through May 31, 2021.
