On October 18, in the Big Concert Hall of the Belarusian State Philharmonic Society, the Three Sticks will perform for the first time in Belarus – an ensemble created by Moscow musicians with the goal of expanding the usual stylistic framework and showing the diversity of percussion instruments working in synthesis with piano, electronics and video.
Three Sticks music is not only original arrangements of neoclassical music, soundtracks and modern trends of pop music, but also original works, each of which tells its own story, captivates and immerses the listener in an unforgettable, magical atmosphere. The band members believe that their audience deserves not only a unique acoustic experience, but also a special visual presentation designed to surprise and highlight the musical line.
The ensemble was founded in 2021 by soloists of the Moscow State Philharmonic, graduates of the Moscow State Conservatory n.a. P.Tchaikovsky and the San Francisco Conservatory by Semyon Khananaev, Alexander Vybornov and Andrey Kovalenko.
In April 2021, the ensemble held its first concert in Moscow with great success. Today, the ensemble’s schedule includes concerts throughout Russia and foreign countries. The group is the official representative of drum companies BlackSwampPercussion and Vater.
As part of the performance in Minsk, residents and guests of the capital will hear the unique program “Three Sticks. Around the world”.
The concert journey will take you to the blooming lavender fields of Southern France, the emerald shores of Ireland, the Fagradalsfjall volcano spewing streams of lava, the most hidden corners of our planet, and at the end of the event we will enter the Earth's orbit to the music of Hans Zimmer in an original arrangement for drums and piano.
This evening, in addition to the music of Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen and Hans Zimmer, the original works of Three Sticks will be performed, all the action will be accompanied by a unique video sequence and special effects.
We look forward to seeing you at the concert!
