Lacrimosa - music of the romantics and philosophers

June 1 2005

On June 10, Swiss gothic band Lacrimosa will play its first concert in Moscow, Palace of Culture. Gorbunova!

I was overwhelmed with joy and inspiration from the very moment when Moscow began to appear rare posters featuring groups and forums of fans of this music zapestrili about reports that the legendary Swiss band will visit our country.

They already loved in Europe, where they performed together with the London Symphony Orchestra and the German Philharmonic Orchestra Bablsberga.

Love them, they imitate, they applauded those who want to touch this music, who was filled with sparkling talent of the group leader Tilo Wolff - romance and a philosopher, a knight and wandering poet, a burning comet, and a sad clown.

A few years ago hardly believe that Lacrimosa visit Moscow. Now fans of the group come from all over Russia, despite the fact that the popularity of the group in our country you can say "widely known in narrow circles."

Over 9 years of history Lacrimosa was released 6 studio albums, a live compilation, 4 minialboma with the singles, was founded by now fairly well-known label Hall of Sermon (currently under the label the release of many groups playing in different styles).

May 9, 2005 the band released their new album "Lichtgestalt" ("Glowing figure"), which will be presented at the concert.

In the work of a strong coupling of classical and gothic music.

Lacrimosa music touches for the most delicate strings of the soul, penetrating into the deepest corners of her. Rhythms are thought out and polished, acoustic guitar, coupled with the sad cello and violin fascinating, heart flutters in anticipation of an explosion of emotions.

According to the leader of Tilo Wolff Lacrimosa music is intellectual, it gives the person a chance to plunge into a world of complex emotions, the world Lacrimosa, and it is quite natural that this music is not for everyone.

Lacrimosa group name comes from Latin, literally it means "tears poured down, and the group was named in honor of the most beautiful part of Mozart's Requiem, which he wrote before his death.

Lyrics are filled with a life philosophy and a desire to feel all its fullness. When the group leader Tilo Wolff in an interview, was asked why in your texts so much philosophy, grief and despair, he replied: "Where would the world be without philosophy? I think that if people these days read plenty of philosophical books, the world would look differently. "
