NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM – On March 12, the State Trio of the Republic of Kazakhstan “FORTE TRIO” will perform at the Historical Conservatory of Florence (Italy). On March 13, the virtuoso ensemble will give a concert in the ancient city of Forlì. The trio will present works of European classics, as well as music by Kazakh composers to the sophisticated Italian public, Kazinform reports citing the press service of the R. Baglanova Kazakh Concert.
Kazakh musicians will perform at the Luigi Cherubini Conservatory of Florence, founded in 1784. It is one of the three most prominent conservatories in Italy, and its library houses manuscripts of millennia ago. The Conservatory Museum houses an invaluable collection of string instruments, some of which are made by Stradivari himself, as well as instruments by the Florentine piano inventor Bartolomeo Cristofori.
This is not the first time the Kazakh ensemble has performed in the Aurora Hall of the Della Skrana Historical Music Society from the ancient Roman city of Forlì. The first concert in 2019 brought the musicians great success and gratitude of local music lovers. And again, under the arches of the medieval palazzo, along with classical works, the enchanting melody “Yapurai” will sound, which the organizers of the concert asked for, and other melodies of our folklore. Founded in 1903, the Della Scrana Music Society is a center of attraction for music lovers from both the city of Forlì and the whole of Emilia Romagna.
It will be recalled that FORTE TRIO is a unique ensemble created in 2013 by the famous pianist, Professor Timur Urmancheev. He combined three instruments – piano, violin and cello. There have never been teams with such a composition in Kazakhstan before. Thanks to the highest performing skills, the trio is today the most popular chamber ensemble in Kazakhstan, actively performing around the world. Along with such world cultural centers as Paris, Rome and Berlin, the band’s touring map even includes the exotic country of Antigua and Barbuda. FORTE TRIO is a part of Roza Baglanova Kazakh Concert.
The band intends to demonstrate the high spirituality and rich musical traditions of the Kazakh people through art.
