A Day with Jani Christou

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

2:00pm to 8:30pm

The prodigious artistic legacy of Greek composer Jani Christou (1926–1970)—one of the most compelling, if lesser-known, figures in postwar European arts—is the subject of this special daylong presentation. Christou drew on philosophy (Wittgenstein, Russell) and psychology (Jung) to infuse avant-garde forms with the elemental power of ritual and myth, aiming to shape, even dramatize, the personal experience of music. The proceedings begin with the documentary Anaparastasis: Life and Work of Jani Christou (1926-1970) (2012), continue with a discussion with composers Anargyros Deniosos and Anne LeBaron, and conclude with a rousing portrait concert as a CalArts orchestra conducted by Andreas Levisianos plays some of Christou’s most important compositions—including Six T.S. Eliot Songs (1955), Praxis for 12 (1966), Anaparastasis I (The Baritone) and Anaparastasis III (The Pianist) (both 1968).
