The Well Tempered Chanson


Date: 21 April 2018
Time: 20:HRS


The Maltese composer Alexey Shor wrote a whole cycle of musical pieces, potpourri and metamorphoses inspired by „smash-hits“ of the Soviet era, such as the criminal romance „Murka“, an urban folklore hit of the 1920s from Odessa. Other songs like „Bagels“ or „Fried chicken“ illustrate a time of radical changes and social drama, underlined by the dark, colourful and velvety sound of the viola which Alexey Shor chose as the leading instrument. The famous American violist David Aaron Carpenter will perform this programme, accompanied the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sergey Stadler.
