Artists famous operatic Mecca visited Moscow

March 26 2006

Artists famous operatic Mecca - the Royal Opera Covent Garden («Covent Garden), visited Moscow. At the Concert Hall to them. Tchaikovsky, they were made with the program Covent Garden Gala. This fact is significant because the public had a chance to get acquainted with the younger generation of musicians. Artists are the same age 35 years of national opera diva Anna Netrebko.

"We invited the young soloists, as this new galaxy, new manner of performance, the emergence of new traditions. Of course, the Moscow public interest to compare the level of foreign singers and young local artists, "- said one of the organizers of the event - Olga Yakin.

Despite his "inexperienced", soloists already achieved a lot in the music arena. In addition to working in the famous theater, along with famous musicians and active tours the world over their shoulders for many victories.

Thus, the baritone Matthew Rose played with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra BBC. His colleague, one of the leading tenors, James Edwards, singing at Covent Garden since 2002, already has worked with Robert Wilson, Jonathan Miller and other celebrities opera

For control of the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia was conducted by Alexander Walker, a high demand in the UK and abroad. He regularly conducts the Royal Opera, the Mariinsky Theater and the New York Metropolitan Opera.

Interestingly, in the 2005-2006 season in addition to performances at home, the young English maestro will conduct the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra, the Macedonian National Philharmonic Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonia.

Last concert was the only concert artists of the Royal Theater in Moscow. "The artists are very busy, so it is hard to find time to gather together at a gala concert. They each have different schedules. One of the guest singers in parallel works in Norway, and the other 3 people involved in the play, "- said Olga Yakin.

It is curious that the performance of opera singers was not "prolonged." The concert took place quite rapidly. Perhaps one reason for this success is a kind of fictional programs, consisting of numerous fragments of famous arias.

According to Olga Yakin, a similar preference for music was the choice of conductors and soloists. "It's all the same musical things, so the prerogative of the artistic productions of the program are usually owned by the conductor," - said the organizer.

As in any other case, in preparation for the concert were different complexity. "The artists were not easy to operate. Reason for this is, the time difference and a small number of rehearsals, so they did not have time to rest and reorganize ", - said Olga Yakin.

The bulk of the tickets sold for three weeks before the concert, which arose some excitement. Though for the first part of this program was difficult to speak, however, after intermission, people became much more, so that they fill almost the entire room.

Viewers will get real pleasure from the singing of the young generation. However, the organizers of the concert - the Moscow Philharmonic and production center "Diaton" leave no hope that the metropolitan audience really pamper eminent stars of "Covent Garden". A year later they are going to organize a gala concert of the best soloists from Vienna, Berlin and Paris.
