EVENING OF VOCAL MUSIC
The Russian Center of Science and Culture hosted an evening of vocal music performed by soloists and the orchestra of the Astana State Academic Philharmonic Society. The concert featured the best voices, honored figures of Kazakhstan such as Bibigul Zhanuzak, Kiyakbai Assambayev, Tatyana Khasyanova, Azamat Zheltygozov and laureates of international competitions. The audience enjoyed the works of outstanding composers such as Rakhmadiev and Zhubanov, as well as foreign classics - Schubert, Brahms and Mozart. The audience was pleased with the talented pianist Saida Kalykova. Her performances are always special and memorable. The musician’s sensuous play touched the heart of every spectator.
SAIDA KALYKOVA, PIANIST
We always try to choose the topics that can be interesting both to us and to the public; this is the most important thing. My work is called "Variations." I composed it when I was studying in Italy in Florence. Since variations are a classical form of music that must follow the canons of the classics, I tried to follow all those canons.
The evening of vocal music was a great gift for music lovers ahead of the spring holidays. Organizers said they have prepared many more events for guest and residents of Astana.
