New Year's Masterpieces of Italian Music Concert
Neapolitan songs, Antonio Vivaldi, Niccoló Paganini, Luigi Boccherini
If you did not plan to celebrate the New Year in Italy, we offer you to arrange an Italian vacation in Moscow. Let us meet on December 31 in the Diplomatic Hall of the Kremlin Palace, and go on a musical journey without visas, flight tickets and passport control.
Neapolitan songs will immediately take you to the clear southern sky, salty splashes of the sea. They will let you “come back to Sorrento”, listen to the famous popular melody of Ernesto De Curtis. Of course, we will not hear fish traders tout their goods on the promenade of Santa Lucia, but it is not that important. However, we will listen to a beautiful melody of the Santa Lucia song, born under the splash of the sea wave.
The concert will also feature music by famous Italian virtuoso composers. Everyone knows the names of Vivaldi and Paganini today. The first turned the violin into an instrument that can express everything, from the beating of an excited heart to the noise and ramble of a sea storm. The second taught it to replace the whole orchestra, turning concerts into extravaganza shows. They called him a sorcerer, a "devil", unsuccessfully trying to unravel the secrets of his incredible skill. The cellist Luigi Boccherini, the third eminent Italian in our concert, today he is known less than his legendary colleagues are, but over the past 250 years, his music has not lost its charm. "Dreamy and fiery, you are beautiful, Boccherini" – they told him during his lifetime.
Wonderful musicians, who, without any exaggeration, can be called real virtuosi, prepared this luxurious New Year’s program.
The artists include famous Alexander Tsygankov, who is called Paganini of domra, magnificent singers - Olga Sidorenko, soprano, Alexander Fomin, bass, Oleg Bugaev, cello, Ivan Pokrovsky, violin, and Inna Shevchenko, piano. Their concerts delight every audience.
