Series: Concert projects
Strings theory is not only a complicated area of theoretical physics but also a fresh musical project invented by Andrey Zvonkov, the guitarist of the B-2 group.
It all started from arranging piano music for guitar. A daring interpretation of S. V. Rachmaninoff’s prelude brought to cooperating with the professor of Moscow Conservatory, pianist Alexander Vershinin, who suggested trying a duo performance of J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations: grand piano and guitar. Goldberg Variations produced such an impression on Andrey, that he learned the whole thing by heart!
Search for a new sound resulted in meeting a composer in demand, contrabass player Vyacheslav Akhmetzyanov. The musicians came to the conclusion that the best choice for Goldberg Variations would be a combination of guitar and string quintet. Hence the name: Strings Theory.
