Hosted by Joseph Horowitz, this event includes three parts:
1. The Stravinsky Odyssey: films and photographs by Katya Chilingiri. One-day only exhibition of photographs documenting Stravinsky’s odyssey from Russia to Switzerland to France to California, along with Chilingiri’s filmed interviews with his descendants. Chilingiri will offer a guided tour, followed by discussion.
2. Rex Lawson performs Stravinsky’s final pianola version of Les Noces (American premiere) in a rarely heard version for solo pianola (mechanical piano) created by the composer.
3. Using archival recordings, film, and music in live performance, pianists Alexander Toradze, George Vatchnadze, and Genadi Zagor take issue with Stravinsky.
