On January 16, the Vadim Sidur Museum will host an unusual music night with a performance of VOCI DI RICCI vocal ensemble featuring the soloists of the Early Music Theatre of the Moscow State University in an a capella program of Baroque and contemporary music. Using their own voices as finest instruments, the musicians will perform madrigals by John Dowland and Dmitry Stepanovich’s vocal cycle “Tuqay’s Poetry” and “Five Hedgehogs for Chorus” (lyrics by Kozma Prutkov).
VOCI DI RICCI is an ensemble led by Dmitry Stepanovich, the soloist of the Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Music Theatre. The ensemble was founded by a group of soloists of the Early Music Theatre of the Moscow State University and gradually expanded into a cast of ten including three winners of prestigious vocal competitions.
These days, the ensemble’s varied and ever growing repertoire includes pieces by Alexander Dargomyzhsky, Dmitry Bortniansky, Sergei Taneyev, John Dowland, Ludwig van Beethoven, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and other composers, as well as 5 cycles by Dmitry Stepanovich himself.
The ensemble has performed at the Moscow State University and the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SAO RAS) and partnered with the Bel Canto foundation and the Public Club of Russian Bass Fans, the Chorus Inside festival in Russia and Italy and the Silver Bells international festival in Latvia; it has also featured in the Museum Night projects at the State Historical Museum and the Glinka Museum of Musical Culture.
All of the ensemble’s members are fully developed soloists, which enables the band to create diverse chamber and operatic programs either accompanied by the piano or the guitar or a capella.
