Pianist Ran Dank makes Chicago debut with "Politically inspired"

On Friday, April 7, at 7:30 PM, the University of Chicago Presents hosts the accomplished Israeli pianist Ran Dank at Mandel Hall.

 

Here Mr. Dank, praised for his technically dazzling and intellectually probing artistry, presents Politically inspired, a program that brings together the seemingly disparate worlds of Frederic Chopin's sweepingly romantic music and Frederic Rzewski's monumental work The People United Will Never Be Defeated!. This concert marks his Chicago debut.

 

Intellectual Revolution at The University of Chicago

Friday, April 7, 2017 to Saturday, April 8, 2017

 

 

Franke Insititute for the Humanities 

1100 East 57th Street 

 

The idea of the conference originates in the conference "The Russian Intellectual Revolution," held in Moscow in fall 2014, which took a multi-disciplinary approach to the broad intellectual changes (not only in politics) in the early 20th century, most evident in the nexus linking Bolshevism with formalism and the origins of critical theory. In tribute to the originators of the conference, Sergei Zenkin will be our keynote speaker.
