Hobart Earle – Ukraine: Music in Wartime

classical, talks
Schoenberg Hall

Join the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music as we welcome Hobart Earle, Music Director and Principal Conductor of the world-renowned Odesa Philharmonic Orchestra.

Maestro Earle will lead a journey through film and music as he pays homage to members of his orchestra—many of whom are currently displaced by the war in Ukraine or fighting the Russian invasion of their country—by presenting high-quality video recordings of their performances from 2014-2023, featuring various musical compositions by Ukrainian and international composers (Valentyn Silvestrov, Giuseppe Verdi, Yevhen Adamstevych, Alemdar Karamanov, Krzysztof Penderecki, Reinhold Gliere, Archibald Joyce, Mykola Lysenko). His presentation will explore lesser-known moments in Ukrainian history, how performers adapt to life during wartime, and how music itself is transformed for the listener due to current events.
