On Wednesday, October 26 at 8:00 pm, the Rubin-Frankel Gallery and the College of Fine Arts present a musical performance, PARALLELS, by the Arneis Quartet. The project, inspired by the art exhibition Faces of Revival: Postwar Russia in the Art of Felix Lembersky (1913-1970), “explores the universal themes of survival, resilience, and the pursuit of artistic freedom under political oppression.”
The Arneis Quartet comprises four Boston University School of Music alumni, and will feature Dmitri Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 and Benjamin Britten String Quartet No. 2. The performance will be preceded by a talk by Assistant Professor of Theory, Dr. Ludmilla Leibman, and a film presentation.
PARALLELS takes place on Wednesday, October 26 from 8:00 to 9:30 pm at the Rubin-Frankel Gallery, located at the Florence and Chafetz Hillel House at 213 Bay State Road. For more information, visit the event listing on the Boston University Hillel website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
