David Bowie (1947-2016) was a mod, a mime, a painter, a folkie, and a British dance-hall aficionado long before he was an art(istic) icon. But no man is an island, and all art is of a time and place. The peculiar and particular climate in which he grew up helped lead to his rise in the late 1960s, which ultimately set him up for great fame in the 1970s, and world domination in the early 1980s. In this UnGeeking session we'll look at some of Bowie's most famous works, from the character-driven Ziggy Stardust and Major Tom, through the Thin White Duke, to the Berlin works and even his turn as Jareth the Goblin King.
In the history of the Russian pianism, the music of Ludwig van Beethoven has occupied one of the central places of the concert as well as pedagogical repertoire for over 150 years since the historical piano concerts of Anton Rubinstein in the 1870s and 1880s. Major Beethoven interpreters emerged over various decades since, including such great pianists as Henrich Neuhaus, Samuel Feinberg, Maria Yudina, Maria Grinberg, Emil Gilels and others. In the second half of the 20th century, Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) came forth as one of the pivotal artists representing the Russian pianistic tradition, as well as one of the most powerful Beethoven interpreters of the 1950s-1990s. Dr. Rachmanov will discuss S. Richter’s contributions to the pianistic Beethoveniana in light of the composer’s recent 250th anniversary as well as the pianist’s 100th commemoration.
