"Purely about music" is the series of conversations about contemporary classical music, musical thought and purely musical logic, about well-known music content and paradoxes of musical phenomenology, about so-called "pure" music and the most "pure" exhibitions of musical in the composer's art, about "absolutely different" and so on - and all of this in the composer and educationary's sight.

Lecture 2. About music, squirrels and bunnies

LECTURE 1. ABOUT BEETHOVEN WITHOUT FAKE PATHETICS.
APRIL 6, 2017, 7:30 P.M. | GOETHE INSTITUT (VOLOSKA STR.,12/4) | FACEBOOK EVENT | FREE ENTRANCE |  SIGN UP

The lecture appears to be the instant continuation of the previous "pathetic" meeting in Goethe Institut in December 2016. It concerns completely amazing and deeply modern  (modernly understood and so received) attributes of musical thought of the first "pure and absolute" composer (and generally the first composer in the modern meaning of the term "composer"!) - L. Beethoven. The original concept of Beethoven's unique place and role in the history, theory and practics of the european professional musical composer's art will be presented this time without fake and complicated pathetics, but not less appassionato. The conversation of the vitality of his abstract and purely musical ideas (also particular paradoxical accent on the problem "Beethoven and esthetics of avant-gardism") is timed to 190th anniversary since the composer's death, which is on March 26. The legend says that in 1787 having listened to Beethoven's improvisation Mozart exclaimed: "He will make everyone talk about him!". So come to Goethe Institut on April 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Beethoven will make everyone talk about him!
