Russian Gala Concert - A Celebration of Russian Heraitage Music
Sergei Kosov – Balalaika, Iryna Ilaytska – Mezzo Soprano,
Yulia Nortbridge – Violin, Ekaterina Shetliffe – Piano.
The performers of this concert are all graduates of leading Russian music colleges who have won prizes and awards for their performances and commitment to music. They have been entertaining audiences in The Midlands and Devon for several years but it will be the first time they have performed together in Taunton. Sergei Kosov, the balalaika player will be travelling from Russia especially for the group's February tour.
Their program will include music by Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Siviridov, whose delightful music has yet to be discovered by many people in Western Europe. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn more of Sivirodov, who died only 20 years ago, but drew inspiration from the great Russian composers and from the country's folk music.
Tickets £9.00 and are available at Taunton Ticket and Travel Centre, The Parade, Taunton. (01823 340470) and online via www.wegottickets.com The performers are keen to encourage young people to develop an interest in music and have agreed any children under 16, accompanied by an adult will be admitted free.
Tea and cakes will be available after the concert.
