Marina Kantor | Riano Concerto
27|10 SUNDAY 16:00

"Don't End It On A Minor.
A one-woman storytelling show.
Using a contemporary performing art piece and her excellent piano skills, Marina Kantor engages the viewers in an informal chat and invites them on a fascinating exploration of the 25 musical notes of the melody of Israeli national, Hatikvah

Music and Concept: Marina Kantor
Directed by Vasile Nedelcu"
Don't End It On A Minor.
A one-woman storytelling show
The hands fly across the piano keys with the confidence and talent of an accomplished pianist classically trained in Russia. The soul fills the performance with Jewish identity and the mind infuses her work with a unique perspective colored by knowledge of European art and history. Marina is more than a pianist. She is a performance artist.
Audiences are swept away on a fascinating exploration of Marina's inventive reincarnations of the melody of Hatikvah.
Don't End It On A Minor is Marina's latest work. It talks about the evolution of 25 notes - the melody of Hatikvah - the national anthem of Israel. The evolution through the ages, from the prayer of the Jews in Spain before the Inquisition, through the styles of well-known classical European composers, culminating in a soulful improvisational jazz jam - the evidence that this melody continues to live in our time.
Marina's inspiration was a conversation that she overheard while ago on a Czech Airline flight. The familiar melody - 25 musical notes – was playing as the plane landed in Prague. The Israeli passengers questioned whether that melody was a variation of the Israeli National Anthem or something else. Marina knew that the piece was "My Fatherland" by Czech composer Smetana, however these questions sparked her curiosity and became a bit of an obsession - everywhere she went these 25 notes were all Marina could think about. They captured her imagination, leading her on a journey which ended with the creation of Don't End it On a Minor. This performance is the story that emerged out of curiosity that led to the journey.

Running time 1 hour
