Revealing the Links Between Impressionist ​Art and Music
Virtual Webinar Via Zoom
Tuesday, January 19, 2021
7:00 – 8:30 pm
Artist Christopher Campbell and Art Historian Nancy Locke Explore the Intersection of Impressionist Music and Painting with Acclaimed Pianist Boris Berman.

The Impressionist movement of the late nineteenth century represented a new way of seeing the world. A radical concept at the time, Impressionism captured ephemeral light effects in sketch-like scenes of modern life. Classical music created in the same era also used “color” or timbre to arouse feelings with evocative harmonies and dramatic ebbs and flows.
Moscow-trained pianist Boris Berman is the Sylvia and Leonard Marx Class of 1954 Professor 
in the Practice of Piano at the Yale School of Music. 
He performs and conducts master classes throughout the world.
Born in Moscow, Boris Berman studied at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory with the distinguished pianist Lev Oborin. In 1973, he left a flourishing career in the Soviet Union to immigrate to Israel where he quickly established himself as one of the most sought-after keyboard performers.

A Grammy nominee, Berman has recorded all solo piano works by Prokofiev and Schnittke, complete sonatas by Scriabin, works by Mozart, Weber, Schumann, Brahms, Franck, Shostakovich, Debussy, Stravinsky, Berio, Cage, and Joplin. Recordings of the works by Debussy performed at the Bruce webinar have been recently released by French label Le Palais des Degustateurs and highly praised by the French critics.
Artist Christopher Campbell.
Christopher Campbell received his B.A. from Yale University in 1979, and studied with Ansel Adams in Yosemite in 1981. After completing his M.A. in art history at Brown University, Campbell received a Fulbright dissertation grant to France where he explored the artistic relationship between Cézanne and Pissarro. In 1990, he met Joan Mitchell in Paris, and the encounter was transformative. Campbell shifted his focus from art history to painting, and moved to Vétheuil, France, where he lived and worked with Mitchell for extended periods.
