The Sound of Colors / Pictures at an Exhibition

This concert features two 35 minute animated films with synchronized piano accompaniment performed by the Russian-French pianist and filmmaker Mikhail Rudy. The New York Premiere of Chagall: The Sound of Colors (2013) depicts Chagall’s sketches for the ceiling of the Opera Garnier as Rudy performs the music of Gluck, Mozart, Wagner, Debussy, and Ravel—the composers represented in the painting. Pictures at an Exhibition (2010) features Kandinsky’s watercolor drawings for the Art Total Exposition at the Bauhaus in 1928 and Mussorgsky’s magnificent piano suite.
