Cinemaphonia: a Film for Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony


Introduced by John Riley PUSHKIN CLUB PROGRAMME Introduction in English. Cinemaphonia creatively matches archive and newly shot film to Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony to give an impressionistic view of the work and the war that inspired it. It was directed by Georgi Paradjanov, nephew of the great Sergei Parajanov (recently celebrated at Pushkin House) in collaboration with friends and relations of the composer. Conceived as a live event, its Moscow and London premieres (at the Royal Albert Hall) were led by Maxim Shostakovich. This presentation (without 120-piece orchestra!) is a version prepared by the director. Introduced by John Riley. John Riley is a curator, writer, teacher and broadcaster, specialising in music and/or film, and the art of Russia and Eastern Europe.
