Past rainy Monday April 26 was not at this time a "heavy". It ended late in the evening by the concert at the prestigious National Arts Club in New York in the middle of all kinds of art - in an area adjacent to the area Union Square.
As part of the eighth annual festival "Our Heritage", produced by Russian American Foundation supported by Mayor Bloomberg and the newspaper «DailyNews», here there was a concert of young singers of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia, in which was based on the international project «OperaPiccola». The main objective of this project - to identify and support talented young singers. It is no secret that the Russian vocal school is still one of the best in the world and the evidence that her pupils singing in the most famous stages in the world. This evening singing is not yet known to the general public, young, I would say, young, soloists (soprano all) Ekaterina Monisova, Ekaterina Karpova, Tatiana Кoninskaya. Girls have posed great voices and can easily cope with the most difficult and at the same time popular opera arias, as they basically perform works of love and joy, suffering and unfulfilled dreams, the listener, the viewer believe them and empathizes. Masterpieces of Tchaikovsky, Arensky, Rachmaninov, Vlasov, Offenbach, Puccini, Handel, Strauss and Verdi performed easily and enthusiastically.
It's not like a concert singer, held in the same room last year, will not it, the People's Artist, name, so as not to offend, but painfully this diva and she like, to put it mildly, does not match the content of external executable musical numbers. Two Ekaterin and Tatiana literally captivated listeners by virtuosity and their natural voices, somewhere, even naive, not yet marked by fame and titles, demeanor on stage. Worthy, in a word, the performance of young, apparently promising singers.
