Lecture |
In 1964, in honor of the 150th anniversary of his birth, monuments to the nineteenth century Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko appeared in Moscow and Washington, D.C. While the statues portrayed the same historical figure, the political and ideological meanings attached to them were diametrically opposed. Nevertheless, both statues reinforced the idea that culture and historical memory mattered during the Cold War. This talk looks at these two statues in the context of the Cold War competition, situating them within a transnational argument about the fate of Ukrainian culture under Soviet rule. Speaker Markian Dobczansky is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ukrainian Studies.

The concluding portion of the concert will look beyond the ars antiqua to music by Josquin, Machaut, and DuFay. Concordian Dawn specializes in Medieval vocal repertoire, focusing on socio-philosophical similarities between texts from centuries ago and the mindset of modern society, relating the human condition of the past to the familiar experiences of the present. Founded in 2012, the ensemble performs regularly on the east coast in both concert and lecture/workshop settings.

The Unanswered Question… In 1973, over the course of six landmark lectures at Harvard University, Leonard Bernstein masterfully tackled the enigmatic meaning of music and defined for a generation a new way to listen. He titled his epic series The Unanswered Question. 50 years later, the Library presents a contemporary reaction, re-evaluation of Bernstein’s Norton Lectures. Lecture excerpts that capture Bernstein’s theories about musical “linguistics” and music in the future will be tested against contemporary perspectives by living composers and performers that work with ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble). Live performances or archival recordings of new music will either affirm, challenge, or revise Bernstein’s claims.

Discussion |
Contemporary flamenco artists are questioning stereotypes that tie flamenco to the past and are seeking an interdisciplinary dialogue with artists and cultural workers of other genres. Politics have entered the expressive palette of many young flamenco artists, including influential guitarist Juan José Suarez "El Paquete" and stunning vocalist Naike Ponce, whose new album is a lyric elegy to women. These artists engage in a conversation with a panel of brilliant New York-based dance artists and scholars, including dancer-makers Margueritte Hemmings and Arielle Rosales and seminal tap historian Constance Valis Hill, about making work attentive to the roar of battle and the stories of love and community that shake and wake audiences to envision a future of different possibilities. This round table, curated and moderated by K. Meira Goldberg and the Foundation for Iberian Music, will explore some of the intricacies of these issues.
