A true British organ sound is visiting Moscow: meet a representative of the British culture, an organist from Edinburgh. The audience will have a chance to admire some royal musical treasures created by the English court composers Henry Purcell and George Frideric Handel, the melodies of Scotland, the Arthurian legend and Edward Elgar’s famous “Nimrod” performed annually for years beside the Cenotaph in London to celebrate the memory of the victims of the two world wars. If you wish to listen to the music of Britain and about Britain, this concert is for you.
