This week, music lovers will be able to hear two first-rate bands performing at Zaryadye Hall, setting new standards of performance. The performances will take place on the official site of the Russian Seasons: www.russianseasons.org.
On Tuesday, July 26, the Russian Seasons video platform will show a concert program from Zaryadye Hall by the Ensemble La Voce Strumentale, led by Dmitri Sinkovsky, which includes works from the album Virtuosissimo (Naïve, 2019) and the disc Per Pisendel (2013). The latter was awarded the Diapason d'Or. Dmitry Sinkovsky has been recognized as a virtuoso violinist, conductor and vocalist.
Energetic and flamboyant, he became famous for his daring violin interpretations of baroque works and was a prize-winner at several major international competitions. La Voce Strumentale (LVS) was founded by Dmitry Sinkovsky in 2011 as an ensemble playing antique instruments and uniting musicians from Western Europe and Russia. Many musicians of LVS are famous soloists, laureates of international competitions; among them are the harpsichordist Alexandra Koreneva, violinist Maria Krestinskaya and lutenist Luca Pianka. LVS is a regular guest at major European music festivals, including the Rheingau Festival, the Lucerne Easter Festival, the Baroque Arts Festival in Stuttgart, and the Ambron Festival of Early Music.
On Thursday, July 28 there will be a broadcast from Zaryadye Hall of the Tyumen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Masters of Choral Singing ensemble and soloists who will perform the masterpiece of the cantata-oratorical genre - the German Requiem by Brahms.
Brahms' work is on a par with, but distinctly different from, the greatest Requiems by Mozart and Verdi. Brahms' Requiem does not use the canonical Latin text of the mass for the dead, but texts from the Bible in the German translation of Martin Luther that the composer selected and composed at his own discretion. The overall message of the Requiem is not fear of death, but victory over it, hope, peace and consolation.
The Tyumen Philharmonic Orchestra was formed in September 2015. The orchestra's first performance was held as part of the traditional Denis Matsuev Music Festival in Tyumen. The orchestra's musicians are graduates of higher musical educational institutions, laureates of all-Russian and international competitions. The orchestra has taken part in the "Stars on Baikal" festival in Irkutsk, Crescendo in Pskov and Moscow, the IV Russian Symphony Orchestra Festival in Yekaterinburg and the Trans-Siberian International Art Festival of Vadim Repin. It has toured extensively throughout Russia. The orchestra's philharmonic seasons bring together top soloists in their programs, among them such performers as Denis Matsuev, Dmitry Maslayev, Alexander Gindin, Vadim Repin, Nikita Borisoglebsky, Yuri Bashmet, Boris Andrianov and Alexander Ramm. Since August 2021, the orchestra has been led by Alexei Karabanov, Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, Honored Artistic Figure of the Russian Federation.
