This year was rich in premieres. The following works saw the light of day:
1. Fantasia Concertante
Is a concerto for piano and orchestra based on the Symphonic Poem “Genesis”. The concerto was created in collaboration with the talented composer Andrei Pospelov and performed by the brilliant pianist Philipp Kopachevsky, accompanied by the Voronezh Orchestra and conducted by Mikhail Kirchhoff.
2. Sonata Fantasia
Is a work for violin and piano based on the cello concerto “Jacob’s Dream”, wonderfully performed by the Honored Artist of Russia, violinist Graf Murzha and pianist Pavel Dombrovsky.
3. El Maleh Rachamim
is the soundtrack to the film “The Address on the Wall” about the tragedy in Babi Yar during World War II, written by Baruch Berliner, Nachum Slutzker and Sergey Krutsenko (RIP).
4. Genesis Rock Show
Is a symphonic rock show staged by director Nikolai Perlukhin in Kaliningrad with the participation of the Genesis Orchestra conducted by Alexander Singer, actors of the SLOVO theater and actors of the Kaliningrad Regional Musical Theater.
Our team published a photo book by the wonderful photographer Ilya Denbrov about the production and premiere of the ballet Genesis in Bishkek.
The excellent art expert Alexandra Makarevich wrote a book about the plot of “Jacob’s Dream” in painting specifically for our project. This is a fairly deep and serious work, telling about the Old Testament myth and the artists who created works on this topic.
The book is currently being prepared for publication and will be published next year.
Brochures about our company and projects were also published in two languages.
We congratulate all our partners and listeners on the upcoming New Year and wish you peace and prosperity.
We are entering the new year with even more ambitious plans and projects, and we promise to delight you with new interesting premieres and concerts.
With love, Baruch Berliner, Nachum Slutzker and the Baruch Berliner’s Genesis International Project team.
