‘The Cellist’ – Film

March 26 @ 11:15 am - 12:45 pm

The Cellist – a film by Murray Grigor

Supporting his family at 8, playing for silent movies, surviving pogroms, Piatigorsky became principal cellist of the Bolshoi at 15 & met Lenin. Virtuoso cellist and raconteur, escaping the Soviet Union made him an action hero.

Fleeing Europe in 1939 to become an American, ‘The Cellist’ revels in his musicianship, wit & humanity, as recounted by the virtuosic cellists and musicians he taught.


The ticket also includes a talk by Ludmila Snigireva about the legendary Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, who will be joined in conversation by his former student Mischa Maisky. The talk starts at 10.00am.
