(and Potluck Party)
We are excited to welcome the distinguished pianist and newly minted UCLA professor Inna Faliks to Los Angeles and Classical Underground, performing Beethoven's rarely heard Fantasy op. 77 (watch a video teaser here: http://vimeo.com/36656346) and Rodion Shchedrin's brawny Basso Ostinato.
Our great friends of CU, violinist Moni Simeonov and pianist Pepi Pilobossian, return to play a movement of the glorious Franck Sonata and some rustic Bulgarian tunes, which he plays with an authentic and irresistible spirit like no else.
Young but already veteran performer Nicholas King continues his CU exploration of Liszt with the titanic Sonata in B minor, one of the touchstones of the virtuoso piano repertoire.
The very particular and specific approach to seeing and comprehending the form that was developed through intense drawing study of the figure allowed its best students a remarkable stylistic versatility in painting evident throughout my Dad's illustrious career.
Those principles are more relevant than ever today as we witness the incredible resurgence, even if still underground, of a serious realism in the contemporary American Art.
