Концерт состоялся 26 November 2017 года
Series: Cathedral's Eve

How beautiful Italy is! A flourishing country surrounded by seas, with its landscapes changing from north to south, with its unrivaled colors. And how excellent the Mediterranean cuisine and the Italian wine are… It’s not for nothing that the expression “dolce vita”, sweet life, was born in Italy, as problems and difficulties tend to fade under the bright Mediterranean sun. In such a country there is no room for depression, and the rich nature inspires to create beautiful things. Indeed in every epoch the Italian art sets examples of harmony and elegance. The Italian baroque music is like a splendid marble sculpture demonstrating conceptual integrity and a multitude of details. One feels like listening to it again and again! Several outstanding musicians have come together and created a wonderful program of compositions by Vivaldi, Corelli, Albinoni and Marcello. These are refined concertos for string orchestra and instruments solo: flute, oboe, cello, and each one resplends in its colors according to the composer’s wish. Vivaldi’s concerto for strings transcribed for organ by Bach will be performed by Lyudmila Golub. The concert will culminate in Antonio Vivaldi’s Stabat Mater presented by Natalia Kreslina and a chamber orchestra conducted by Alexey Chuykov. The medieval lyrics describe Mary’s grief at the cross, but the music amazes with its beauty. Indeed in Italy even sorrow is beautiful…
