3. The concert will take place in a historically remarkable building with perfect acoustics.
Anton Rubinstein was genius. Liszt and Chopin worshipped his skills, Tchaikovsky learned and inspired from him. The Rubinstein as the pianist was an icon, but Rubinstein as a composer was not recognized during his life. He did not have many supporters in public activity either, though it was Rubinstein who changed history by opening the first Conservatory in the Russian Empire.
Mahler's genius was also embodied in two roles – conductor and composer, but the composer's fame came to him only fifty years after his death. Gustav Mahler was a ruthless, fanatical perfectionist; he instilled either fierce hatred or great love and devotion.
On November 9, the Symphony Orchestra will play Mahler and Rubinstein under the direction of conductor Nazar Yakobenchuk. The modern vaults of the House of Recording infuse psychedelic video art from animator and video artist Svitlana Reinish.
72 musicians, perfect acoustics, unsurpassed 3D mapping and genius music.
This is the second concert of the United by the Roots series – a joint project of UNIT: Art Solution, Moishe House, PAIDEIA, which honors and rethinks the heritage of Jewish artists.
