16/21 Choral Festival
22.06 - 24.06.2015
We continue to "settle down" in the Arsenal's new spaces. For the first time guests of the 16/21 festival will be able to choose where they want to listen to music: at the upper or the lower level of the double-height central risalit.
The festival's program compares the Russian vocal tradition with the European, the ancient one - with contemporary. The Nizhny Novgorod Municipal Chorus will open the project and perform music of Russian composers of the 20-21 centuries. Performance of the Senseless War of Giya Kancheli for chorus and saxophone quartet will be dedicated to the commemorative date of June 22. Concert of the Chronos vocal ensemble (con. E. Skurat, Moscow) will create a truly unique combination of architecture, acoustics and music. The ensemble will perform music from the 17 century. The Festino choir (Saint-Petersburg) will sing The Story of Madrigal, which combines works from the 16, 20 and 21 centuries written in this genre.
23 June - Masterpieces of the Russian Renaissance.
24 June - The Story of Madrigal.
Concerts start at 19.00
ADDRESS: Arsenal, Nizhny Novgorod, Kremlin, building 6.
