Dear friends, by purchasing tickets, you agree to сomply with our rules for concertgoers.
When music is called sacred or mystical, we tend to think it is very old. However nowadays spiritual musical culture is constantly updating. And maybe the works of our contemporaries are more likely to resonate with the audience than those of the composers of the past.
This concert is a collection of the best samples of mystical music of the 20th and 21st centuries: Arvo Pärt’s classical works and other beautiful pieces of recent choral music.
The concert features the Ex Orinte Lux ensemble focusing on European sacred music and Marina Omelchenko, titular organist of the Catholic cathedral of Moscow.
