This is a film to learn about Darius Milhaud before going to the concert two days later.
Here is the UMS description of the event:
"Darius Milhaud was one of the most fertile composers of the 20th century, leaving behind an extensive artistic legacy of nearly 450 works that stand out as some of the most original French music of his time. Before being recognized and accepted, many of his works caused scandal and gave rise to impassioned controversy due to their renegade spirit and their pioneering character. His music expresses his attachment to popular roots, such as those of his native Provence; his Jewish religious faith; and his humanist convictions. Aided by Milhaud’s wife’s reminiscences and by the artist’s own comments, this film looks at the work and life of Darius Milhaud, a man that stood for universality and for dialogue between cultures.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition State of Exception, which curates objects from Jason De León’s (U-M Anthropology) Undocumented Migration Project, the largest assemblage of migrant artifacts in the country.
The exhibition is a collaboration between De León, artist/photographer Richard Barnes, and Institute for the Humanities curator Amanda Krugliak, and runs at the U-M Institute for the Humanities Gallery (202 South Thayer St.) through March 12, 2013."
In collaboration with the U-M Museum of Art and the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
