The Moscow State Academic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pavel Kogan will take part in the festival marathon: three concerts, each in one act as part of the Philharmonic subscription No.3, VII International Festival of Contemporary Music “Another Space”. There will be performed the “Requiem” for the soloists, choir and orchestra of the Austrian composer and musicologist of Hungarian origin - Gyorgy Ligeti. Unlike most of the composers of his generation, Ligeti never became interested in serialism. His mature style is characterized by the predominance of an extremely thick, intensely vibrating polyphonic texture, which the composer calls "micropolyphony", and texture based on a kaleidoscopic alternation of jerky sounds and bright sound spots. In late work, neo-romantic tendencies are revealed, the importance of Hungarian folkloric intonations, as well as parody and satirical moments, increase. A young and very charismatic maestro, Filipp Chizhevsky, will stand at the conductor's desk. With the participation of the Academic Big Choir "Masters of Choral Singing" Radio "Orpheus" and the Academy of Choral Art named after V.S. Popov.
