Russian Motifs in Toronto


Mila Filatova’s name is very well known within the Toronto musical community, especially among the vocal music fans. She is a diverse musician who serves as an accompanist, chorus master, coach, and conductor. She received a Master Degree in Music from the State University of Riga in the former USSR. Since then she has been a guest artist with the Latvian Symphony Orchestra as well as a performer at numerous festivals, many of which have been broadcast at national radio. Upon arrival in Canada she has established a vocal coaching studio wherein she has worked with such artists as the 2003 Grammy Nominee Gidon Saks, the Metropolitan Opera baritone John Relyea and the internationally renowned soprano Ghena Dimitrova.
A great Russian accompanist Evgeny Shenderovich once said: “A soloist is a sail, while an accompanist is a helm. If a boat does not have either of these components, it will be disoriented and unable to reach the desired shore.” Singers who are taught by M.Filatova, have the unique opportunity to absorb and understand the Russian vocal repertoire and its specific style.
Mila continues to explore new ways of delivering this repertoire to audiences. Five years ago she established in Toronto The New Opera & Concerts Centre. The main aims of the new establishment are: to present and popularize opera and vocal music, especially that not very familiar to Canadian audiences, and to develop young Canadian singers for the opera stage. To fulfill these ambitious goals, Mila has produced workshop performances of Bach’s Coffee Cantata, Rossini’s Barber of Seville, Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro and The Impresario, Haydn’s Der Apotheker , and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Iolanta and Queen of Spades. While some of these works are well known to the Toronto audience, Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta and Queen of Spades are rarely seen on the Toronto operatic stage. Many young and promising Canadian singers participated in NOCC’s productions; for some of them it was the first step towards a professional operatic career.

The Centre is active not only in opera productions-in the three last years NOCC has presented a series of recitals entitled “Russian Motifs”, “Musical Encounters” and “Dedication to Verdi”. The next concert of the “Russian Motifs” series will feature the vocal music of Modest Mussorgsky and Sergei Prokofiev.

Mussorgsky’s The Songs and Dances of Death cycle (1875-1877) consists of four songs, where Death appears as an active character. In The Lullaby it is the death of a child, in The Serenade - the death of a maid, in Trepak - the death of a poor peasant, and in The Commander - the loss of soldiers in the battle field. The entire cycle is one of the most tragic in vocal repertoire; it requires from a performer not only advanced vocal skill, but also an extensive dramatic sense.
In contrast to this sordid work, The Nursery (1872) is full of serene emotions associated with the childhood.

These cycles are rarely rendered in North America, and their upcoming performance will fill this gap. Interesting to note that they will be complemented by pantomime and dramatic movement (Kiera Allison) illustrating their stories and moods. This unusual and exciting blend of singing and movement, Mussorgsky’s cycles will be presented to the Toronto audience for the first time.

The vocal works of Prokofiev to be presented include The Ugly Duckling’s suite (1914) after the Hans Andersen fairy tale. The renowned music critic of the time V.Karatygin wrote of the premiere: “The Ugly Duckling by Prokofiev is a sort of tone poem for voice and piano. It is composed with great temperament and is full of unusual harmonic details. In using humorous musical and illustrative means Prokofiev demonstrates some similarity with Mussorgsky”. Needless to say, The Ugly Duckling has never been performed in Toronto before.

The New Opera and Concerts Centre presents “Russian Motifs” upcoming concert with Canadian sopranos Cathy Robinson and Celine Papizewska and movement artist Kiera Allison. They will be accompanied by Artistic Director Mila Filatova. The concert will be held on Saturday, November 19, 7:30 p.m., at the Church of St. Martin in the Field (151 Glenlake Ave., North-East corner of Bloor and Keele, Keele subway station ). Tickets $25 and $20.

The Hydro-Teslatron is the signature water feature at Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort.

The Hydro-Teslatron miraculously turns the action of Niagara’s rushing water into electricity – an innovation that has truly changed the world. The Hydro-Teslatron comes to life several times a day. After darkness descends each night, it uses lasers, LED displays, loudspeakers and, of course, water and electricity, to simulate an electrical disaster of epic proportions. During these seven-minute shows, audiences are reminded that the forces of electricity – and of mighty Niagara itself – can never be fully controlled by humankind.
Don't miss it!

World Press Photo: Beyond Words: Photographers of War

Beyond Words: Photographers of War

documentary to be screened at the World Press Photo Exhibition, Toronto

Sunday, October 23, 2005
2:00 p.m. (doors open at 1:30 p.m.)
Velma Rogers Graham Theatre (Rogers Building)
333 Bloor St East @ Jarvis
Free Admission
"Beyond Words: Photographers of War" features interviews with, and photos by, twenty-four of the world's top photojournalists as they reflect on the intense, often conflicted, and always fascinating relationship they have with their work.

Photographs shape our understanding of war. A naked girl running down a street after a napalm attack. The execution of a VietCong prisoner. Mass graves in Bosnia. Hooded torture victims of the Iraq War. But the people who take the photos are largely unknown to most people. Why do they do it? What price do they pay? What does their work actually matter? "Beyond Words: Photographers of War" features interviews with, and photographs by, 24 of the world's top photojournalists. Penetrating beyond the oft-repeated justification of the need to bear witness, it offers a searing, troubled and fascinating portrait of who war photographers really are.

Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with the producers, Greg Kelly and Eric Foss of CBC News: Sunday.

New York: Guggenheim Museum: RUSSIA! Unprecedented Exposition of Russian Art

September 16, 2005 -– January 11, 2006

Overview: RUSSIA! is the most comprehensive and significant exhibition of Russian art outside Russia since the end of the Cold War. Including more than 250 artworks, many of which have rarely or never traveled abroad, this innovative presentation features the greatest masterpieces of Russian art from the 13th century to the present, as well as a selection of first-class Western European paintings and sculptures from the imperial art collections assembled by Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, and Nicholas I in the 18th and 19th centuries, and later in the early 20th century by the Moscow merchants Sergei Shchukin and Ivan Morozov...

It is planned, that in 2006 in Russia there will be presented a mutual exhibition under the name "America!". We hope that the idea of this ambitious project - to present an image of each country: its history, roots and traditions, will be accomplished.

World Press Photo: 50 Years of Reflecting How the World Has Changed

This photographic exhibition has a bias for human rights and reflects more or less the situation around the world.
It will be interesting to analyze retrospective this EX from the image semantic point of view. So that will give you the dynamics how the World has changed for better and for worse.
At least for last few years I would leave this EX completely devastated from amount of misery which was presented on the background of beautiful nature and technological breakthroughs.

50 Лет Отражения Как Изменился Мир

Эта выставка фотографий отражает права человека и, более или менее, ситуацию во всем мире.

Будет интересно проанализировать ретроспективу выставки с точка зрения семантики образов. Так, чтобы увидеть динамику как изменился мир и в лучшую и в худшую стороны.

По крайней мере в течение прошлых нескольких лет я уходил с этой выставки полностью опустошенным от количества страданий, которое было представлено на фоне красивой природы и крупных технологических достижений.

FOREWARD to World Press Photo 05 Diego Goldberg, February 2005

"The photographs in the exhibition are a celebration of diversity; voices from all over the world, different styles from different cultures, events that defy comprehension and tender moments. In these pictures you will smell flowers and gunpowder. You will touch the skin of babies and feel hunger. You will hear the roar of nature and the silence of grief. And maybe, just maybe, you will be a bit closer to understanding who we are, which is the ultimate questions..."
