Vocal Parallels Concert was Held in Nur-Sultan

The concert Vocal Parallels dedicated to the memory of the outstanding opera singer Erik Kurmangaliyev was held in the capital.

The countertenor artist has been spending much of the time performing concerts. The Kazakh artist has been performing operas and solo programs on the famous stages of the world. Part of his repertoire was in the musical evening program.

Masterpieces of world classic as well as works of Kazakh authors were performed by friends and colleagues of Erik Kurmangaliyev.

“His voice was included in the Book of Records. Today, his friends, artists from Russia including famous pianist Alexander Kotovschikov, soprano Larisa Rudakova, soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow as well as two countertenors Rustam Yavayev and Oleg Ryabets came to the Astana Opera Theatre. I think that for our audience, it is a huge interesting opportunity to hear firsthand such rare voices,” said Senior Staff of Kazakh National University of Arts, Batyrzhan Smakov.
