Utopia Now? Sign me up!

With the revolution of 1917 the Russian people had a lot to fix; they needed food, an army that could protect the country and a method of coordinating a vast country with the primitive communication of the time. During this period deprivation a heady optimism sprang up and there was an explosion of revolutionary art. Audacious schools of painting and music took root and flourished before state control swerved into Stalinism.

On the Piano this Sunday music of the Russian Avant-Garde and what happened to the pioneers of pushing the musical envelope in an increasingly totalitarian state. Hear music from the edge on the Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.
