Calgary Pro Musica presents:

The Voxare String Quartet accompany a screening of Vertov’s 1929 groundbreaking silent film

Music by Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Mosolov and Stravinsky


The Voxare String Quartet accompanies a screening of Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent movie masterpiece, The man with a movie camera.

Documenting urban scenes in Moscow and Ukraine, the camera captured citizens from dawn to dusk in all aspects of life — mundane, athletic, dangerous, and breathtaking. Drawing on the feast of Soviet-era quartet music composed during the same time period as the film, Voxare creates a visual and sonic experience unlike any concert ever seen. Music includes quartets by Shostakovich, Prokofiev, and Mosolov.
