The wandering muse of the Jewish folklore
Venue: Documentary film center
Speaker: Lyalya Kandaurova
“The Wandering Muse” is a film dedicated to the Jewish folklore; to motives, instruments, and musical inflections that are inherent to the Jewish culture regardless of its geography. Jewish folk music has been developing within the Jewish Diaspora, and that is why it had often had a big influence on the work of Jewish classical composers in terms of themes and melodies both. Lyalya Kandaurova, music expert and classical music popularizer, will tell about what connections there exist in the history of music with the original Jewish folklore.
Lyalya Kandaurova is a violinist who holds a graduate and a postgraduate degree from the Moscow State Conservatory. She writes about music for print and internet publications. She is a permanent author of Seasons magazine and an author of several classical music courses. Lyalya is a professional when it comes to talking about classical music with people who only listen to it on rare occasions and have a rather superficial understanding of it: she helps listeners to learn the basics about genres, about how to listen and how to hear. Lyalya proves that even if you have never been to the Conservatory before (or if you have, and fallen asleep), you can learn how to understand classical music and how to take an enormous joy in the process.
