Details

The winner of international contests, the Festino Chamber Choir was founded in 2008 as a community of like-minded professionals who are passionate about Renaissance and Baroque music. Since then, the choir has turned into a rare ensemble that has mastered the concert and theatre stage, ancient and modern music alike. 

At Dom Radio several works by Nastasya Khrushcheva written exclusively for the Festino Chamber Choir will be performed. Each of these represents a radical post-ironic gesture. According to the composer’s idea, the verbal characteristics of the compositions play no less a role in their perception than the music itself and its performance. 

The concert will also feature a choral concert by Dmitri Smirnov – the 20th century classic of choral music from Saint Petersburg – based on the poems by Osip Mandelstam I Was Born in the Ninety-Fourth, I Was Born in the Ninety-Second. This complex, tragic work explicitly or implicitly reveals the poet’s ideas about time as a fan in which the past, present and future coexist as a single whole.
