Organ Performance By Ekaterina Melnikova
March 28, 2014 12:58


The Prokofiev's Hall of the Central Museum of Musical Culture in Moscow will hold a presentation of world-renowned organist Ekaterina Melnikova on April 2, 2014.

Ekaterina Melnikova is one of the rare artists who manage to keep the audience in suspense from one season to another, playing the musical instrument which is seemingly unpopular. It is difficult to give a precise definition to her genre of performance, Ekaterina has developed her own format and style of music - organ performance.

Innovation and courage of Ekaterina tear the organ out of the context of classical music, and her independence from the formulaic stereotypes leave the organ no chance to remain in its elite retreat.

The brand-new world of organ music of Ekaterina Melnikova corresponds to a XXI century style being a mix of traditional and ultra-modern ones. She carries out musical experiments and fearlessly mixes her own compositions and transcriptions of different authors.

Ekaterina Melnikova is the only one of Russian musicians whose organ arrangements are published in the United States. The project of Ekaterina gathered a unique team consisting of ambitious and flexible artists. The implementation of her bold plan involved the  “guru” of the Indian Kathak dance Tatiana Nazarova, the member of “The Pocket Symphony” ensemble Grigoriy Krotenko, the “King of Moscow Clarinet” Sergei Shitov, the winner of the title “Professional performer on sitar of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations” Subshri Janardan, the graduate of the London's Royal Academy of Music, trumpeter Guy Vesey, the first Russian organist honored to play on the holy Mass of the Pope in Vatican Maria Makarenko, the “Mime-Orchestra” of Alisher Khasanov, the rock band “Cardio Beat” and the chamber choir “Vitrazhi Golosov” (“Stained-Glass Voices”) headed by the dean of the Conducting and Choir Faculty of the Moscow State Conservatory named after P.I. Tchaikovsky, Professor Aleksei Rudnevskiy.

The tickets are sold at the box offices of the Museum Association: The Central Museum of Musical Culture (4, Fadeeva), the Museum “P.I. Tchaikovsky and Moscow” (46/54 Kudrinskaya Square), The Museum of S.S. Prokofiev (6 Kamergerskiy).
