The City of Angels Welcomes Moscow’s Finest – RSO @ UCLA

classical, contemporary
Schoenberg Hall Watch Livestream

In the second concert of their residency at UCLA, the Russian String Orchestra, directed by Misha Rachlevsky, performs professor David Lefkowitz‘s Zachor, a piece commissioned and premiered by RSO in 2017, as well as two works by professor Richard Danielpour that the orchestra recorded in Moscow in April 2017. Also on the program are works by Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky, which are a testament to RSO’s Russian lineage, and Arnold Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht, a tribute to the composer for whom UCLA’s Schoenberg Hall is named.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
