Today in History: Piet #Mondrian born in 1872

Happy Birthday, Piet Mondrian. The Dutch painter was born 145 years ago today. Pieter Cornelis “Piet” Mondriaan (after 1906 Mondrian) was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and is best known for his non-representational form termed neo-plasticism. While Mondrian’s early works were naturalistic and impressionistic in nature, his appreciation of cubism around 1910 put him on the path toward pure abstraction. Mondrian’s most famous compositions (f.ex. “Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue” from 1921) consisted primarily of grids of black lines and colored rectangles on a white background.

Today in History: World Premiere of Swan Lake in 1877

Today in History: World Premiere of #Swan Lake in 1877

“Swan Lake” was Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s (1840-1893) first ballet composition. Apart from “Sleeping Beauty” (1890) and “The Nutcracker” (1892), it is considered today as perhaps the most important classical ballet. However, its first performance in Moscow in 1877 was met with harsh criticism by audiences and critics alike. Tchaikovsky was very disappointed by the failure of his first ballet and tried to find the cause in his music. For years, he intended to re-edit his work, but he never did. After Tchaikovsky’s death, Marius Petipa and Riccardo Driggo drastically reworked the ballet’s choreography. On February 17, 1894, the revised ballet premiered in St. Petersburg and was a huge success. Today, “Swan Lake” is considered to be Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece.
