On March 5 at 17.00, the concert "Music of Vivaldi" will take place in the "Astana" National Art Gallery. The evening will be held within the framework of the Astana Opera House’s series of charity concerts, dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory.
The concert program includes instrumental works by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi: the "Four Seasons", "Concerto Grosso D-moll", "Concerto for Two Trumpets". The Astana Opera orchestra soloists Sagikozha Yerezhepov, Aigerim Ergalieva, Kirill Krasyukov, Madina Mukhamet, Kalamkas Jumabayeva, Guzal Tadzhikulova, Kurvanzhan Akhatov, Ross Clarke, Marat Zakiryanov will give the audience this meeting with the high art.
Vivaldi is one of the most famous composers of the Baroque era. He wrote a great number of works for various solo instruments.
— This concert is a proof that the Astana Opera orchestra assembled the best musicians: every artist can perform solo, says Kalamkas Jumabayeva, first violin of the Astana Opera symphony orchestra.
— The "Four Seasons" is Vivaldi’s most famous work. There is a theory that the composer himself wrote the sonnets for this musical composition. This music is often featured in films and on the radio. However, I think that the audience will be interested to get to know the whole series together: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This music is very imaginative. We can assume that the composer portrayed four ages of man from birth to death. The sense of sadness from falling leaves and joy of life of the blooming spring and summer can be heard in the music, — continued Kalamkas.
We would like to remind that throughout the year the opera house has scheduled 12 concerts to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Their main purpose is to give the audience an opportunity to enjoy classical art.
— Participation in these concerts brings us great joy, — noted the orchestra soloists.
The concert starts at 17.00, free admission.
