Victor Zinchuk is a legend of the Russian guitar music, the most highly skilled guitarist of the world and a Guinness World Records winner. He received his title for performing Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous “Flight of the Bumblebee”. And that was not by pure chance! Though his priority is rock and pop music, he has achieved success in the academic tradition as well. He was among the first musicians who played pieces by Bach, Mozart and other classical composers on the electric guitar.
Tonight the unsurpassed master of six strings will perform his favourite classical compositions together with the pipe organ. Listening to an electric guitar in the special acoustics of the Cathedral is a very fresh and unusual acoustic experience! The programme includes arias from Mozart and Rossini’s operas, masterpieces by Bach and Beethoven and the tunes of Christmas carols of various nations.
