Saturday At Beethoven Festival: Revolution 2012

Saturday - September 15 - Preston Bradley Center - 941 West Lawrence

Discovering the Russian Bard Movement
A Poetic, Visual and Sound Experience
Curated by Anya Yermakova
Evgeni Poliak; Vladimir Kuperman; Yury Beyderman
An exploration of the world of Russian Author Songs. Born in the post-Stalin years of “Thaw”, this narrative tradition seeks to this day, in the Russian diaspora as well as in Russia itself, to color a world of perpetual grey with defense of lost virtues. Holding nature as the focus for human reference, at times expressing political satire, at others highlighting the simple beauty of sincerity, this beatnik-like tradition mirrors Prometheus’ own search for spiritual freedom and universal truths.
