The male vocal quartet will perform a program of 19th century Russian sacred and secular songs.
The St. Petersburg Men's Ensemble as an independent group founded in 2003 to develop a new form and new capabilities in the realization of artistic ideas, as well as expanding the limits of generally accepted perceptions on performing capabilities of singing groups and choirs.
Due to high professionalism of its members, it's now possible for a wide audience to enjoy the musical compositions that require considerably larger number of performers.
The group's repertoire encompasses various epochs and styles--from ancient Russian chants and chorals of Western European to modern music.
Since one of the tasks of the ensemble is the popularization of preeminently Russian music, their program allows to most fully elucidate and introduce to the audience Russian folk songs, secular and ecclesiastic compositions, as well as modern composers and transpositions of popular melodies.
