DISCOVERING PROKOFIEV: MUSIC AND THE ARCHIVE

DISCOVERING PROKOFIEV: MUSIC AND THE ARCHIVE

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 8:00pm
Location: 
Reid Hall, Columbia Global Centers

Columbia University has been a vital hub for Prokofiev studies since the deposit of a rich trove of the composer's archival material at the University in 2014. The Serge Prokofiev Archive, housed at Columbia’s Rare Books and Manuscript Library and supported by the Serge Prokofiev Foundation, is the premier research source on Prokofiev’s time in the West (1918-1936).

This concert will initiate a yearlong commemoration by Columbia University of the 100th anniversary of Serge Prokofiev’s American debut in New York City. Cynthia Liu, CC ’18, will perform three piano works highlighting Prokofiev’s virtuosity as a composer and foregrounding the notions of interruption and irony, themes that recur brilliantly and tragically in Prokofiev’s art and life. Archivist Natalia Ermolaev (GSAS ‘10), who has a doctorate from Columbia's Department of Slavic Languages, will complement the music with insights from the archive, illustrating the importance of documentary traces in mapping the complex, trans-national impact of Prokofiev’s music for the last century.

THE LIVING, 2008

THE LIVING, 2008

Monday, November 27, 2017 - 7:00pm
Location: 
Deutsches Haus, 420 116th St. (off Amsterdam Ave.)

Ukrainian Film Club @ Columbia University

in commemoration of 84th anniversary of Holodomor,

the genocidal famine in Ukraine in 1932-1933 will screen

THE LIVING, 2008

director Serhii Bukovsky

This documentary masterpiece is about the Holodomor, genocidal and deliberately organized famine of Ukrainians by the Soviet regime as it strove to build the communist “brave new word” free of classes, cultures, nations and, ultimately, humanity itself. Survivors’ accounts are intricately woven with the story of the Welsh journalist Gareth Jones whose reports on the catastrophe remained largely unheeded in the West. Through the creative genius of the director Serhii Bukosvky this account of one of the worst tragedies in modern European history becomes a triumphant affirmation of the invincibility of the human spirit in the face of evil. This celebrated documentary is an absolute must-see.

 

When: Nov. 27, 2017, Monday, 7:00 PM

Where: Deutsches Haus, 420 116th St.

(off Amsterdam Ave.)

 

Yuri Shevchuk will introduce the film and lead the discussion.

In Ukrainian and English with English subtitles.

Free and open to the public.
