It is a Russian version of La Folle Journee – a festival which presents short (usually not much than an hour-long) classical music concerts for a diverse audience, on one day. Or three days in our case – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
As I had not got much time to visit everything I would love, baroque music was my choice this time. So I have picked and visited two concerts, each was marvelous in its own way.
Performers of Baroque Music Festival
First concert: Domenico Scarlatti‘s and Frideric Handel‘s compositions performed by a French pianist Anne Queffélec. Very lively performance. Professional, emotional, and extremely expressive. Second concert: Belgian instrumental ensemble Ricercar Consort. It included historical instruments and soprano. They have a page on Deezer even, HERE it is. Made a couple of mistakes here and there, but it spoiled nothing. Was fun and enjoyable.
I have decided not to dress up for the occasion. But to look decent nonetheless. So I’ve picked a simple beige turtleneck top, washed jeans, and white comfy sneakers with brown stripes. And of curse my beloved brown leather bag to carry the tickets to the concerts. Nothing fancy, a usual effortless everyday look.
