MALIKA MINISINI, SOLOIST, ASTANA OPERA THEATRE:
- We held the same genre concert a month ago and decided to repeat it. Most of those who will perform today are young performers from Kazakhstan. Today I will perform a beautiful work by the Russian composer Gurilev "The Heart-toy" and the Western-European composer Toastie "Farewell song".
Kazakh, Russian, Italian, Spanish, French, German popular romances and songs were performed in the evening, as well as instrumental miniatures. The audience enjoyed such works as ‘Tansamaly’ by Rakhmadiyev, "Gashyktyk kumarlyk pen ol eki zhol" by Mendygaliev,"The Night" by Rubinstein, and other masterpieces by Wolf, Schumann and Schubert.
MEDET CHOTABAYEV, LEADING SOLOIST, ASTANA OPERA THEATRE:
- It is hard to perform romances because they are short pieces of music full of sentiments, strong feelings and emotions that a singer should convey to the audience.
