“While preparing for the new season of the“ Organ Kingdom ”project, we had no doubt what composer to dedicate our first meeting to,” says Honored Artist of the Republic of Tatarstan, organist Lada Labzina. - For two thousand years of organ history, many talented creators have composed for this instrument. But only one was destined to become a symbol of organ music - this is Johann Sebastian Bach. In the program of the first concert - real masterpieces; we know that we can already speak with our young listeners in a serious musical language. ”
The plot of the concert "The Tale of the Moon Notebook" is built around a well-known fact from the biography of Bach. Left orphaned and raised by his elder brother, organist of town Ordruf Johann Christoph, 10-year-old Johann Sebastian secretly took out a notebook carefully kept by his brother with musical notes of that time at night and rewrote them in the light of the moon. Such nightly “lessons” lasted for half a year and ended with the fact that the brother took the rewritten notes from Bach. However, musicologists believe that doing so, I.S. Bach, who did not receive professional music education and never traveled outside of Germany, became acquainted with authentic musical masterpieces, intuitively comprehended the technical aspects of the mastery of the leading composers of the era, and later managed to generalize in his work all the best that was in world music before him.
On November 11, works by I.S. Bach (Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, Organ Prelude in C Major, Fantasia in G Major, Prelude and Fugue in A Minor), as well as composers of the Lunar Notebook - G. Bema, N. Bruns, L. Clerambo, A. Vivaldi. Participation in the concert will be taken by a vocalist Ksenia Romanova, who will perform Aria soprano from Matthew Passion by JS Bach and Aria from Bayazet opera A. Vivaldi. Soloist - Lada Labzina (organ), presenter - Victoria Shusharina.
