The vocal ensemble "Camerata" comprises of eight professional musicians – seven singers and a sound engineer. All of them have graduated from higher music schools in Belarus and Russia, where they were able to inherit the world's best accomplishments in the music culture.
Camerata's repertoire includes pieces belonging to different genres from classical to jazz, often interwoven into each other and giving birth to totally new and uncommon combinations. The nature of all kinds of the group"s experiments lies not so much in their desire to please different audiences, but in their credo being to create individual pieces. The singers are sophisticated both in styles and voice timbres artistically adapting each of them to a particular work. So, when speaking about Camerata, it is not enough to say that they have got a soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Each of the above is quite unexpectedly presented in their compositions with sound imitation making them absolutely unique.
This indeed has enabled Camerata to win and be admired by any audience at festivals of all music traditions – academic, folklore, spiritual, avant-garde, jazz, blues and rock. They repeatedly manifested their talents during their concert tours in Switzerland, Poland, Turkey, Austria and the United States, as well as at major music forums, such as Varna Summer, International Gospel Music Festival, International Ankara Music Festival, Molde International Jazz Festival and others. Their tours of the formers USSR cities (Saint-Petersburg, Arkhangelsk, Nizhni Novgorod, Riga, Kaliningrad, etc.) were just as successful and impressive.
Listening to Camerata is a unique experience having quite a magic effect. The latter could perhaps be accounted for by an extremely careful and tremulant attitude to each sound on the part of the group"s participants. In addition to that, their compositions are very special in terms of their variety of plots, where there always is something "sacred and profane" (David Weiss), heavenly and human.
Camerata brings us back to our roots live voices, which are wonderfully combined with electronic arrangement by the sound engineer, ethnic background, and the original vast sound room devoid of any style and genre borders.Director - Marchenko Irina tel: +375 17 284 34 02 +375 44 749 98 25
