12:00 Petr Vostokov Big Jazz Orchestra
The golden jazz rush, a time of swing and kilometer-long lines to dance halls - this is the atmosphere that the Great Jazz Orchestra recreates at its concerts. Recreating the authentic sound of the music of that time, using original scores and old instruments, the orchestra presents its listeners unique in its kind programs, dedicated to the "great giants" of orchestral jazz of very different eras and directions: from the swing jazz of the '20s by Paul Whiteman to the rock of the late '60s by Buddy Rich, from entertaining dance swing to serious works of large form - Duke Ellington suites, from the classic mambo of Tito Puente and Perez Prado to jazz interpretations of Beatles band music. The Great Jazz Orchestra consists of young talents - like-minded musicians, students and graduates of leading Russian musical institutes, soloists of leading Moscow jazz big bands, laureates of numerous jazz competitions and festivals. The orchestra's founders are jazz singer Daria Antonova and renowned trumpeter Peter Vostokov. Since 2012, the orchestra has been a resident of the legendary Essay Jazz Club and a regular guest at various Russian and international jazz festivals (Jazz at Hermitage Garden, Russian World Jazz Stars, Koktebel Jazz Party, Jazz May, Jazz Parking Festival), and has performed at the most prestigious venues in Moscow, including the Moscow Conservatory, International House of Music, the State Kremlin Palace.
