In a lecture illustrated with film clips, Professor Timothy Sergay of UAlbany will present an overview of Russian and Soviet film music. His focus will be not only the famous contributions of Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich, but also lesser known master Georgi Sviridov, the Soviet adoption of the Hollywood musical genre in the 1930s, the cultural role songs created for Soviet films, and the influence of Russian music on Hollywood film scores. Other composers to be discussed will include non-Russians, such as the Armenian composers Aram Khachaturian (soundtrack for Spartacus) and his student, Mikael Tariverdiev.
