On October 31 at 19:00 at the Digital Art Center Artplay Media in Kazan, a unique event will take place – a concert of music in the a capella genre performed by the REVERSO vocal ensemble accompanied by landscape painting.
The concert is called in the name of the composition of the Hungarian composer Bela Bartok, which will be performed at the very end."Falun" means "in the village" in Hungarian, because it was there that the best samples of folk song were born centuries ago. However, going a long way, they have undergone many changes, and soon, our concert will show arrangements of the same folk songs from different countries (Ireland, Finland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Norway, Russia), but in the interpretation of modern academic composers.
The female vocal ensemble REVERSO will perform musical works a capella – in the form of one of the most complex genre of performing art. The multimedia program of the concert, represented by landscape paintings by Impressionists Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Renoir, Signac and mosaic ornaments by Gustav Klimt, interprets musical compositions in an original way, making it easier for the viewer to read and deeply feel them. Viewers will be able to immerse themselves in the harmonious world of sound and color, where a new look at old things opens up.
