Enjoy Music Canvasses in Moscow Cathedral
June 18, 2016 11:54

Music and painting live in parallel self-sufficient Universes, but that makes their combination in one concert even more interesting. The Music Canvasses project is aimed at highlighting new aspects of both arts: unveiling musical secrets of great paintings and finding color implications in classical scores.

Music that will accompany projections of Ivan Ayvazovsky's seascapes in the St. Peter and Paul Cathedral is in itself similar to forces of nature. Immortal compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Friedrich Mendelssohn, Léon Boëllmann and Louis Victor Jules Vierne will be performed on the saxophone, duduk and organ on June 18.

On June 25 graceful canvasses by the Pre-Raphaelites will receive an unexpected musical frame in the form of inspiring and majestic organ melodies of Johann Sebastian Bach.

July 2 will see synergy of mind-blowing impressionist masterpieces and classical organ compositions of various epoch played on three music instruments located in different points of the cathedral.

On July 9 the mysterious order of Vasily Kandinsky's colors and forms will engage in a dialogue with sounds of the organ and Armenian duduk. Compositions by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, Friedrich Mendelssohn, Robert Schuman and Nikolay Sidelnikov will prompt seeing new meanings in creativity of the great abstract artist.

On July 16 melodies by Vivaldi, Bach, Piazzolla and other composers played on the organ and guitar will add magnificent coloring to Henri Rousseau's naive paintings and Vincent Van Gogh's magic landscapes.

August 6 will bring together in one concert the baroque geniuses of  Bach and Vivaldi, as well as Jan Vermeer's paintings bearing the imprint of eternity.

On August 13 portraits by the Renaissance titan El Greco will come to live to the tunes of the later era French composers, such as Gabriel Faure, Fransis Poulenc, and Reinaldo Ana.

At last, on August 20 the final chord in the Music Canvasses will be struck with projections of Albrecht Duerer's pictures on the cathedral arches to the accompaniment of inspiring high romanticism by Richard Wagner and Franz Liszt.

The Sts Peter and Paul Cathedral is located at the address: 7/10, Starosadsky Lane, not far from the Kitay Gorod metro station, Moscow.
