A big city offers us plenty of opportunities but in exchange requires constant tension. Everyone has his own way of fighting stress: sport, walks or meditations… Listening to Ave Maria performed in a cathedral on a real organ is one of very beautiful and effective means of achieving inner harmony.
The word “Ave” means “rejoice”. Thus the Angel greeted the Blessed Virgin bringing her the happy news. How often we wish to hear this encouragement pronounced with confidence and benevolence! Sometimes music does that…
Schuberts melody is one of those that refresh and encourage us. Another example of a joyful tune is Caccinis Ave Maria. It is curious that it was composed far from the beautiful Italy, in a city that exists no more, Leningrad, by a Russian composer, our compatriot.

Who is the concert for?

This “anti-stress” concert is meant for those who are obliged to work hard and have little rest, as well as for all popular classical music lovers.

Why should we go there?

The programme includes pleasant popular classical pieces, light music that helps to put aside the hustle and bustle and the problems of the megalopolis.

Among other compositions, the three most popular Ave Maria melodies in the world music are presented: the one of Franz Schubert, the one of two authors (Bach-Gounod) and a piece never written by Giulio Caccini. In reality its author was a Soviet lutenist Vladimir F. Vavilov…
