The Blue Rider evokes a pivotal moment when artists and composers broke free from old ways of seeing and hearing, inventing new worlds in music and art. Lighting, projections and video to create stunning visual partners for ground-breaking music by Berg, de Hartmann, Lourié, Schoenberg, Scriabin and Webern that changed the century.
A fascinating multimedia project…exposed the live-wire connection between [Schoenberg and Kandinsky], both cutting loose from representational and tonal practices that had anchored the visual and musical arts.”
