The word “imitation” may seem to have a negative connotation, a hint of lack of independence. But it is only by imitating that we learn and perceive the meaning of our existence. The great Bach never missed an opportunity to learn even from those whose capacities were quite ordinary. And all true composers attended the school of imitation, like singing birds who learn from their congeners. Mikael Tariverdiev has a splend series called “Imitating Old Masters”.  And another Russian composer, Vladimir Vavilov, tried to imitate Giulio Caccini and finally composed an “Ave Maria” that became much more popular than the Italian maestro’s works.

A duo of soprano and organ will also perform pieces by C. Franck, C. Saint-Saëns and other classical composers.
