On July 16, a concert dedicated to the main Belgian holiday - the National Belgian Day - was held at the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Brussels. A unique international project Malevich’s Quartet (The Malevich Piano Quartet) performed on the stage. The first violin is Andrei Rostsyk.
This group has won numerous awards abroad and participates in prestigious music festivals. The program of the evening includes virtuoso piano quartets of Felix Mendelssohn, Bohuslav Martinu, Robert Schumann and the famous Quartet in E-major by Sergey Taneyev. Melodic beauty, passion, tension, as well as the richest finale, full of drama, the most difficult counterpoint, replete with emotional and dynamic contrasts.
The music did not leave anyone indifferent, from the smallest viewers to the most sophisticated music lovers. It was especially nice to greet a large number of Belgians at the festival.
The program director of the Russian Center, Vitaly Mlechin, welcomed the guests, congratulated on Belgium Day, and also noted that the Center had recently successfully hosted a concert dedicated to the Russia Day. Russia and Belgium are close in many positions, and diplomatic relations in 2018 marked the 165th anniversary.
It is no coincidence that the appearance of Malevich’s Quartet on the National Day of Belgium in the Russian Center - the team combines Russian and European culture, a virtuoso performance of the most famous and interesting works of world classics.
After the concert, the audience raised a glass of friendship for Russian-Belgian cooperation and viewed the exhibition “Russian Tsars and Emperors”.
