Derzhavin Palace Hosts Potemkin Evenings
Topic: 400th Anniversary

 

The Derzhavin Palace in St. Petersburg will host Potemkin Evenings in honour of the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty beginning on January 16th.

A total of 20 concerts will be offered over the next 6 months. Each concert will be dedicated to a member of the Romanov dynasty, including: Anna Ivanovna, Elizabeth Petrovna, Peter III, Catherine II,  Paul I, Maria Feodorovna, Alexander I, Elizabeth Alexeyevna. Plus, a special concert dedicated to Prince Potemkin of Tauride.

The concerts will feature the Soloists of Catherine the Great, under the direction of violinist Andrei Reshetin. Each concert will offer authentic historic music of Russia's past, including classical and Baroque works, as well as forgotten masterpieces of Russian music of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The first two concerts: Russian Quartets of the 18th Century (January 16th), and Home Baroque of the 18th Century (January 30th).

The Soloists of Catherine the Great was created by Andrei Reshetin in 2007, along with the choir Tauris. The group are named after the great musicians who served at the Court of Catherine the Great. 

Organizers point out the historical interiors of the palace will provide ambiance for guests to immerse themselves in the bygone era of 18th century St. Petersburg.

The former palace of the famous Russian poet, Gavriil Derzhavin is situated on the Fontanka Embankment in central St. Petersburg.
