Mussorgsky-Kandinsky – Pictures at an Exhibition

Chagall – The Sound of Colours – the composers of the Paris opera ceiling

Mikhail Rudy was close to Marc Chagall in his last years. Having given his first concert in the West with Rostropovich and Isaac Stern for Chagall’s 90th birthday, the pianist subsequently met the artist on numerous occasions. In collaboration with the Chagall family, who allowed him to use unpublished sketches for the ceiling of the Opera Garnier, Mikhail Rudy has created an animated film which he accompanies with music from Gluck, Mozart, Wagner, Debussy and Ravel.

In the first half of the concert, Rudy reprises his original multi-media performance of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition based on original drawings and designs by Vasily Kandinsky.

‘Mikhail Rudy’s most recent fabulous project, whereby arts and music enter into a dialogue… a moving tribute, extremely well achieved’ Le Figaro
