28 Oct - 25 Nov 2011: Boyan Ensemble of Kiev 20th Anniversary UK Tour PDF Print E-mail

 

Since 1992 music lovers have been enthralled by the singing of the Boyan Ensemble, whose 20th consecutive tour of the UK starts in Sanderstead on 28 October with 26 concerts scheduled nationwide.

The Boyan Ensemble, a fully professional choir, is renowned for its magnificent sound: deepest bass (perhaps only the Slavs can produce such voices) blending seamlessly with baritone and tenor. In many of the works a single lyric soprano soars above the smooth tones of the men, adding a unique quality that distinguishes this choir from all others.

Part I consists of sacred chants of the Eastern Orthodox church, many specially arranged for the Ensemble, which reflect the intense spiritual drama of a religion banned under the Soviet regime, while Part II showcases the vibrant and exciting folklore of Ukraine with a kaleidoscope of songs in many moods. Traditional instruments, including Bandura and lira, (hurdy–gurdy), feature in this section of the programme. Find out more about the Boyan Ensemble or listen to some of their music on www.vocalclassics.co.uk/boyan/index.htm

"The standard of musicianship is breathtaking"
