The Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra – a synthesis of European music and Belarusian melodies – is a dynamic musical movement. Acclaimed performances by this world-class orchestra have included classics such as Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Grieg’s Two Elegaic Melodies, and music by Vivaldi, Haydn, Massenet, and Tchaikovsky. All of these wonderful pieces are performed with old-fashioned charm, elegance, and incredible musical ability.
Often, the orchestra performs pieces with the Belarusian national instrument: cymbals. It seems as though the thoughtful Belarusian national character appears through the sounds of these orchestral cymbals. These sounds include the graceful souls, the expanse of rivers, and the voices of the mighty forests of Belarus.
In one particularly exciting performance, the orchestra performed music from the film Pink Panther. These classical musicians magically filled the hall with jazz, transporting one to the times of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Imagine, violins were playing in such a way that a saxophone was entirely unmissed.
In music, like in life, everything is decided by the individual. The Conductor of the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra does not simply conduct. He is like a bird that hovers over the musicians and calls them to soar into the sky. His baton is like a beak that can stop the music, slow its fowl. Ten, all of a sudden, the baton can move frantically, and, with it, the music starts to rapidly fowl.
The music bewitches the soul with impressions of the cries of love, despair, and dreams. The Conductor, a very talented Evgeny Bushkov, inhabits the world of Music, and that is why unearthly sounds can be heard in the music of this orchestra.
The upcoming tour of the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra will occur in the Floridian city of Naples and will certainly provide a fantastic evening of entertainment for music lovers as well as those looking for something different.
