Film: “The Cellist” with Meadowmount Performance

6:30 Reception, 7 p.m. Screening

The legendary Meadowmount School will offer a performance during the reception Supporting his family with his cello playing as a pre-teen after his father abandoned them, Piatigorsky went on to become principal cellist of the Bolshoi at age 15. He suffered pogroms in Russia, poverty in Poland and Germany as a refugee from the Bolshevik Revolution, endured pressures of concertizing throughout the world, barely out of adolescence – stateless, protected only by a Nansen Certificate of Identity – and narrowly escaped Nazi tyranny by fleeing to America in 1939. The Cellist reveals Piatigorsky’s world-class musicianship, wit & humanity, as recounted by the virtuosic cellists and musicians that were his pupils. Film by Murray Grigor, 2018, 104 min.
