On 5 April 2009, to prepare the atmosphere for this concert, the Los Angeles Goethe Institute will be showing the film A Cry in the Universe Galina Ustvolskaya and her Symphony No. 2, produced by Dutch television VPRO. After that, a podium discussion on the oeuvre of Ustvolskaya has been planned with the German composer Wolfgang von Schweinitz, who lives in Berkeley.
