7th Moscow Festival "Duduk and Organ"
September 20, 2018 15:48

September 27, 2018, will see the grand opening of the 7th Moscow Festival "Duduk and Organ" at the Sts Peter and Paul Cathedral, the oldest Lutheran Cathedral in Moscow
The closer to the sky, the wider the horizons.
The music festival organized by the Belcanto Foundation connects the centuries-old history of music and interlaces its various genres and traditions, while bringing together the consequences and the primary sources ... Folklore music will compete with baroque and romance… Everything is interconnected and harmonious: the classics take roots in the folk tradition. The Armenian folk instrument duduk sounds mesmerizing next to the majestic organ.

The music organ embodies the greatness of spirit and heavenly flight, the voices of angels and the prayer of the soul. Duduk is the weeping of the soul about the past and unfulfilled, it is like a mountain echo lost among the mountains; it is a song of wind and stone. In a word, they are completely different, these two music miracles ... And they will play along in one concert.

Their voices will merge and blend together the epochs and styles: the time-tested classics and folklore that carries the history of a whole nation.

What was previously difficult to imagine in a harmonious confluence - the majestic organ, the largest keyboard instrument ever, and the Armenian duduk, the oldest musical instrument recognized as a masterpiece of the UNESCO World Heritage, - will jointly play music under the dome of the Lutheran cathedral in Moscow.

The music by Bach, Boelmann, and Mozart as well as ethnic compositions will be performed by the winners of international competitions Ivan Ipatov (organ), Anastasia Sidelnikova (organ), and Oleg Mariakhin (saxophone). A special guest of the concert is Armenian musician and composer, duduk player Norayr Barseghyan.

When: September 26

Where: Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral at the address 7, Starosadskiy pereulok, Moscow.

Duduk, Organ, and Saxophone. Milky Way through Hubble Telescope on October 6
Go on a cosmic journey along the Milky Way to the accompaniment of the classics of world music. A fantastic video installation of space images through the Hubble telescope and the polyphony of duduk, organ and saxophone will make your space trip incomparable and unforgettable. Great Johann Sebastian Bach created music in the XVII century, long before man’s first flights into the open space. Nevertheless, the sound of his music has so much to do with cosmos. The power and sonorousness of Bach's polyphony is both the eternal movement of stars and planets, and profound cosmic silence.
