The audience will find a kaleidoscope of musical styles at this concert.
Works by composers of the 20th century Alfred Schnittke, Samuel Barber, Mikael Tariverdiev will be
performed on a par with our contemporaries: Estonian Arvo Pärt, Latvian Eric Eschenvalds, and
American creator of the virtual choir Eric Whitacre. These composers experiment with sound, find new
means of expression, and use unusual instruments. Spirituals will complement the program.
The Minin Choir under the direction of Timofey Golberg boldly picks up the challenges of the new time,
demonstrating flexibility and mastery of a variety of styles. The program is attended by the famous
Spanish organist Daniel Salvador.
In an unusual sound for the a cappella choir, the famous Adagio for Strings by the American classic
Samuel Barber will appear. In the author's arrangement for the choir (under the title Exsultate, jubilee),
another hit will be performed — Palladio by Carl Jenkins, one of the most popular composers of our
time and a knight of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
The cathedral's historic organ will also be played this evening. Spanish organist Daniel Salvador, titular
organist of the St. Michael Pontifical Basilica in Madrid, will pick up the main stylistic lines of the concert.
Visitors will hear daring sound experiments in the play Annual per annum by Arvo Pärt, and soulful lyrics
in the Arias from the organ concerto by Mikael Tariverdiev.
