Soloists: Daria Sushkova (mezzo-soprano), Rudolf Hovsepyan (baritone), Victoria Zyablitskaya (soprano). Presentation of the concert and accompaniment - maestro Andrey Shevchuk
The repertoire of the festive evening is a unique selection of works of Russian classics, including "Prince Igor" by A. Borodin, "Sadko" by N. Rimsky-Korsakov, "Peak Dama" by P. Tchaikovsky, and his romances, and even romances written by Peter Ilyich especially on french poems. And the gentlest “Vocalise” of Rakhmaninov, written for voice, and “The Snow Maiden” by N. Rimsky-Korsakov. The evening turned out to be filled with the sounds of Russian music, and the wonderful voices of youngopera singers and the most interesting introductions and stories about the works of maestro Andrey Shevchuk. And lastly, the hall together with young talents sang “Dear Long”.
We dare to assume that if A.S. Pushkin saw the performances of young talents, he would have liked them!
