Music and Poetry in Hermitage today
23.07.2004 00:00

The IV International festival Music of the Great Hermitage (St.-Petersburg) will finish today with the Tree of Life mystery that will be held today in Winter Palace.
       Music by Prokofiev, Maler, Onegger, Ivaz and other composers of the XX century will be performed by orchestras of the State Hermitage and Shostakovich Academic Philharmonic, the choir of Saint Jacob Church from Germany and St.-Petersburg Youth Chamber Choir. The mystery play also includes verses by the silver age poets (beginning of the XX c.) that will be recited by Yury Shevchuk, a famous rock musician and poet and Dina Korzun, a gifted actress. This was reported at the press-conference by composer Sergey Yevtushenko, the Hermitage Orchestra director, who is also the art director of the festival.
       As Yury Shevchuk said he was happy to accept the invitation for participating in the festival. Verses by Pasternak, Ahmatova, Tarkovsky and other poets which I will recite today in Hermitage are in harmony with the music. Generally all music arrives from the words, a most delicate tune can be derived from words. The Tree of Life mystery is an interesting project. Its authors, performers and the audience can indulge into music and poetry and find certain inner answers and see themselves, - Shevchuk said.
       The festival Music of the Great Hermitage is taking place in St.-Petersburg from July, 14th. The premiere of the opera Armida and Rinaldo by Giuseppe Sarti and act Episode from actors life to the music of Gektor Berlioze were already performed in the framework of the festival.
