Far in the North a vast cold country lies, where icy mountains and the rough sea collide in an endless battle. A country of winds and blizzards, aurora and sacred paths, where in waking an inclement and wild world true stories and fables are encountered. Nature, as if coming down from Nesterov’s landscapes or pages of the works of Ibsen and Hamsun. A place that could not help giving birth to such original and significant, but at the same time so different representatives of composer art: the great musical aristocrat Carl Nielsen, genius Edward Grieg - a composer associated with all Norwegian national art, and the prodigious Finnish master of symphonic music Jan Sibelius.
Alexei Vereshchagin (conductor) and soloist Polina Shamaeva (mezzo-soprano) will take part in the concert.
