Don Cossacks at lake Weissensee

Monday, 24 August 2015

Kosaken tnAmazing Russian choral and solo songs, famous monastery legends and traditional folk tunes presented by Zarewitsch Don Cossacks on Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 8.30 p.m., protestant church in Techendorf.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At lake Weissensee also this year with the enchanting programme „Russian Voices"

A special musical experience promises the concert of the Zarewitsch Don Cossacks with magnificent voices, deep bass and clear black tenors. They sing of their joy, their melancholy and their pain with original Russian melodies.
It's a journey through common Russian stereotypes, steaming samovars, matryoshka dolls, the country's width, the eternal ice and the deepness of soul, moments of yearning, romantic visions of melancholic moments, mystical moments in life, but also impulsive joy of life emerging from mental profundity. All these aspects are perceptible during this concert featuring Zarewitsch Don Cossacks that will introduce you to a world of harmonic a-cappella-singing.

This is a unique chance for us to experience great choral music from orthodox liturgy borne by Slavic musicality.

The ensemble founded in 1958 intended its programme as „Solemn Concert" featuring spiritual songs, Russian folk tunes as well as classic songs.

 

The programme may include: Vater unser, Der Heilige Ehemann, Lobet den Namen des Herrn, Dir singen wir, Cherubim Hymne, Die Legende von Mönch Pitirim, Große Doxologie, Der reumütige Schächer, In Deinem Himmelreich, Abendglocken, Stenka Rasin, Kamuschka, Troika, Ich bete an die Macht der Liebe and much more.

Enjoy this unforgettable concert evening.
