10:30 AM Lecture: Prophet Jeremiah Symphony Leonard Bernstein's Jeremiah Symphony uses verses from the Book of Lamentations to portray the tragedy of the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple in 587 BCE. The authorship of "Lamentations" is traditionally ascribed to Jeremiah, the prophet who lived during that period. In this class we will look at two separate aspects of this fascinating and most important of the biblical prophets: Jeremiah in his historical context as a political figure advocating a pacifist stance, and Jeremiah as a wrathful and tragic messenger of God's word. In the first two sessions of this class, Noah Hadas will guide us to look at two separate messengers of God's word. In the third session (May 10), Nuvi Mehta, San Diego Symphony's pre-concert lecturer who also performed as a violinist with the SD Symphony for several seasons, will present on the Jeremiah Symphony which will be performed at Copley Hall over the weekend of May 11-13. Mehta is an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic lecturer who comes from a renowned musical family and attended conducting seminars with Leonard Bernstein himself.

6:00 PM Film: 24 Frames For what would prove to be his final film, Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami gave himself a challenge: to create a dialogue between his work as a filmmaker and his work as a photographer, bridging the two art forms to which he had dedicated his life. Setting out to reconstruct the moments immediately before and after a photograph is taken, Kiarostami selected twenty-four still images—most of them stark landscapes inhabited only by foraging birds and other wildlife—and digitally animated them into subtly evolving four-and-a-half-minute vignettes, creating a series of poignant studies in movement, perception, and time. A sustained meditation on the process of image making, 24 Frames is a graceful and elegiac farewell from one of the giants of world cinema.
