Solo concert "ORGAN: SYMPHONIC FANTASY"

Solo concert

in the Great Hall of the Conservatory

Вечер «ОРГАН: СИМФОНИЧЕСКАЯ ФАНТАЗИЯ» состоится 28 января в Большом зале консерватории. 

В программе вечера органные Фантазии выдающихся композиторов четырёх столетий: Баха, Свелинка, Франка, Листа и Глазунова. 

Удивительно разнообразная по характеру и масштабу – от миниатюр до грандиозных полотен – эта музыка раскроет безграничные возможности уникального «симфонического органа» консерватории. Под виртуозными пальцами Константина Волостнова роскошный французский инструмент конца 19 столетия обретает колоссальную мощь и выразительность, то обрушивая со сцены раскаты грома, то увлекая слушателя в мир еле уловимых фантастических образов.

"Konstantin Volostnov has demonstrated a remarkable school of performance on original keyboard instruments, as well as a subtle understanding of styles of music by 17th and 18th century composers."
