The play "TIMES ... OF THE YEAR ..." became the final part of a kind of "triptych" created at the Kamburova Theater by Ivan Popovsky in co-authorship with the arranger h. a. Russia Oleg Sinkin - and the first performance of Popovski in the new "position" - this year he was awarded the honorary title of the Ambassador of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia in the Russian Federation.
This production was a continuation of the search for original scenic forms of interpretation of music as a synthesis of instrumental and vocal genres, including painting, plastics and poetry. Traditionally, as in all the productions of Ivan Popovsky, the peculiarities of the production were the original light and plastic scores.
Performance "TIMES. .. OF THE YEAR. .. "Theater of Music and Poetry became a spiritual journey in time and space through literary and musical images and painting. The musical basis of the performance this time was the "Seasons" cycles of composers A. Vivaldi, J. Haydn, P. Tchaikovsky and A. Piazzolla. And since this is the final part of the "triptych", the instrumental sounding of the "Seasons" differs from previous productions - it absorbed all the experience of the first two parts.
"Seasons" Antonio Vivaldi belong to the most popular works, they demonstrate Vivaldi's amazing innovation in the field of the baroque concert. It is a cycle of four concerts for string orchestra, soloing violins and harpsichords. Now Vivaldi's "Seasons" are known to everyone, life has classified this cycle as "popular classic".
The greatness of Joseph Haydn as a composer was manifested most in one of his final works - the great oratorio "The Seasons", which can serve as an exemplary standard of musical classicism. The most important figurative sphere of the work is the world of nature. Paintings of nature, which performs its annual cycle, receive from him not only colorfully-pictorial, but also philosophical interpretation - a parallel is planned between the change of the seasons and the course of human life.
"The Seasons" by Pyotr Tchaikovsky is a kind of musical diary of the composer, capturing scenes of life that are dear to his heart, meetings and pictures of nature. In the images of this musical cycle, Tchaikovsky is also imprinted with endless Russian expanses, rural life, pictures of Petersburg's urban landscapes, and scenes from the home musical life of Russian people of that time. This masterpiece is distinguished by the captivating melodic expressiveness and subtlety of the piano letter.
The musical cycles of great classics coexist in the play with "The Seasons" by Astor Piazzolla - the Argentine king of tango, who turned over the usual ideas about this genre.
In the arrangements of the musical director Oleg Sinkin's production "Seasons" Vivaldi, Haydn and Tchaikovsky received a fresh reading, and Piazzolla's works resonated in an entirely new way, organically coexisting in the arrangements of Sinkin with all the famous classics.
Streaming fabrics, playful shadows, dancing color spots - the riot of contrasts is called to help in order to shade the music.
Classical music can be embodied and interpreted in different ways, the richness of melodies involves a lot of interpretations, and the most unexpected visual series can be found in the works of Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Haydn and Piazzolla.
The viewer is invited to go in search of correspondences and roll-calls between sketches-sketches and "The Seasons" of four composers. The support, contrast background or continuation found the music in the theater? ..
The second time I watch this performance. Admire the director's discoveries of Ivan Popovsky. His ingenuity is unlimited. Quartet girls as always on top. Well, the music of Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky and Piazzolla does not need comments). Must watch. Pleasure for the true theatergoers.
Wonderful performance, thank you! But the scene is very poorly visible, everything that happens in the meter from the floor is not visible behind the spectators' backs. You need to ponyaat the farther, the higher!
