LSU Science Café: Stravinsky in America

Join us for an online LSU Science Café with a faculty researcher.

*Please note: Due to the current situation with the Omicron variant of COVID-19, out of an abundance of caution and in consultation with our team and the Vice President for Research, we have decided that our January 2022 edition of LSU Science Café will be an online only experience.

About this event

LSU School of Music Professor Inessa Bazayev will present on Igor Stravinsky, an iconic Russian composer of the 20th century whose music influenced countless musicians and artists across the globe. Dr. Bazayev is also the director of the Stravinsky in America festival that will take place Feb. 17–19, 2022 to mark the 50th anniversary of Stravinsky’s death by bringing together international Stravinsky scholars and performers to LSU.

About the Speaker

Inessa Bazayev is the Paula G. Manship Professor of Music Theory and the head of the Music Theory Area at LSU, where she has taught since 2009. Her research focuses on Soviet music, Russian music theory, and voice-leading in atonal music. She has published on these and other topics in major music theory journals. She was the director of the International Symposium on Prokofiev and the Russian Tradition (February 2016, LSU), which included scholarly papers from a dozen countries, concerts, and a premiere of Prokofiev’s unfinished Piano Concerto No. 6. Collaboration and interdisciplinary approaches to music are at the heart of Bazayev's professional activities. For the past five years, she has taught regularly at the Roger Hadfield Ogden Honors College on topics that range from music and art to politics and protest music. Dr. Bazayev also serves on the boards of the Ogden Honors College and Center for Collaborative Knowledge.


LSU Science Café is presented in partnership with WRKF.
