About event



On September 27, Marco Concert invites you to listen to Bach and Vivaldi's famous works at one of the city's most beautiful theaters and concert halls - Atrium at the Fairmont Grand Hotel Kyiv.

Johann Sebastian Bach is a German composer and musician of the Baroque era, the largest figure in world culture. Creativity of the universal musician, who lived in the XVIII century, is genre inclusive: Bach combined and summarized the traditions of the Protestant choir with the traditions of music schools in Austria, Italy and France. Creating immortal masterpieces, he transformed each beat of his compositions into small works, combining them then in the form of priceless creations of exceptional beauty and expressiveness.

Priest, renowned virtuoso violinist, teacher and composer, Antonio Vivaldi has written over 700 works during his life, including operas, choral works, more than 500 concerts for various instruments and orchestra. Vivaldi's creativity was studied by the great Bach, translating a number of his instrumental concerts for the organ with unspeakable skill. In Vivaldi's life was everything, as in his bizarre era. Yet, in his life and work, he is something unchanged - he has always remained himself, and his music is not confused with the music of other composers.
