Natalia Pschenitschnikova: Live-Improvisation
based on the poem „Zangezi“ by Velimir Khlebnikov

The centerpiece of the evening devoted to Spanish composer Charo Calvo is the premiere of “Um,” a radio composition based on Russian poet Velimir Khlebnikow’s ideas and enthusiasm. In his brief life, Khlebnikow experienced the First World War, the Russian Revolution and Civil War, and believed, as expressed in a letter to his sister, to have discovered a mathematical formula for the “laws of time,” allowing for the possibility of eternal peace.
In addition, excerpts of three award-winning film projects will be screened featuring music composed by Charo Calvo. The discussion will focus on the ways in which the medial characteristics of the projects were suited for musical interpretation.
