On April 30, in the framework of the International Jazz Day, an excellent jazz concert of the trio "Lait Russe" (literally "Russian Milk") took place in the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Brussels.
The concert included improvisations on well-known classical themes in jazz arrangements and on favorite tunes from popular Soviet films, well, of course, well-known jazz standards, taken from American and French songs. Lyubov Barskaya very well felt the audience, so it turned out full musical participation, and artists on stage, and the audience in the hall. The guests sang along with “Moscow Windows”, and on the eve of Victory Day, the world-famous “Katyusha”, and many other songs. The concert lasted longer, as the audience obviously did not want to let go the musicians.
The participants of the trio are musicians of Russian-Belgian origin, who received musical education in Russia and in the West, absorbed new trends in European and world jazz and improvisation. For example, Sergey Gorlenko plays in the National Belgian Orchestra.
