Many people have heard the monumental and powerful voice of the organ. But do they know that it goes perfectly well with that of the clarinet? Two excellent musicians, Sergey Petrov, concertmaster of the Bolshoi clarinets, and Vladimir Korolevsky, organist of the Volgograd Philharmonic Society, are here to prove it. The two virtuosos are ready to meet the challenge of performing such complicated pieces as a concerto by Mozart and a sonata by Saint-Saëns. And certainly there is room in the program for traditional masterpieces for organ solo by Bach and Widor. Even an experienced listener has no chance to be bored, indeed the concert concludes with a couple of jokes by the Hungarian composer Béla Kovács that will make you feel like dancing even while seated on a bench!
