Day 9 - Kuhmo International Chamber Music Festival 2010

.








Yet another day of Kuhmo Spirit and great music and performances.












Natacha Kudritskaya.




Natacha Kudritskaya began her studies in Kiev under Irina Barinova and Igor 
Riabov, and from 2003 to 2007 she was in Alain Planes' class at the Paris 
Conservatoire. After that she went on to study under Stefan Vladar at the 
University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. She studied chamber music at 
the Academie Maurice Ravel, where her teacher was Jean Claude Pennetier. 
Kudritskaya has played as soloist with the Kiev Symphony Orchestra and 
appeared at several European music festivals, such as Santander, with Dmitri 
Bashirov and Claudio Martinez-Mehner.

Set in Atlantis in the kingdom of Emperor Overall, Ullmann's opera is full of ironic brilliance, humour, poignancy, and 
evocative quotations. His virtuosic writing interweaves jazz, dance music material, blues, a rewriting of "Deutschland über 
Alles" in the style of a Bach chorale and even more surprising encoded quotations. Ullmann (like Chaplin) dared to satirise 
the political situation of WWII. During a final rehearsal in September 1944, some SS officers happened to be around and 
were outraged at what they heard. Der Kaiser von Atlantis was immediately banned.

The shadows of Dvořák (Requiem), Suk, Mahler, Kurt Weill’s political cabaret and Ullmann’s talent make The Emperor of 
Atlantis one of the most fascinating multilayered masterpieces of the 20th century.

Mare Nostrum

... Rubashov when accused: What is your opinion about oceans and the infinite? I thought: Here must be the core of my
guilt; is there anything worse for a totalitarian cannibal? I got carried away by his “oceanic” feeling. He felt ashamed.
“Running away from responsibility”, “betrayal of the struggle between classes”, the Bolshevik party disapproved of these
petit-bourgeois notions. The “oceanic feeling” was counterrevolutionary…
