Date: Friday, June 28, 2013
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Performer: Dr. Polli Chambers-Salazar, pianist
Type: Musical Performance

The early 20th century was a time of experimentation, and composers such as Igor Stravinsky were writing innovative new music while artists such as Alexei Jawlensky were investigating color, line and form. After many years in the Russian army and a period of study at the Academy of Art in St. Petersburg, Jawlensky moved to Munich, where he painted portraits infused with intense color. Jawlensky’s use of color was shared by his fellow Russian, the composer Alexander Scriabin, who was interested in the connections between color and musical tones. Pianist Polli Chambers-Salazar presents an evening focusing on the works of Jawlensky and on piano works of Russian composers of the same era.
