The representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London hosted a literary and musical evening “In the moonlight, the snow is silver...” dedicated to the Russian lyrical song.
The guests of the evening learned about the history of lyrical song as a genre and the connection between the musical term "lyrical song" with the roman group of languages. Interesting facts about the spread of the genre by gypsy choirs and its integration into the Russian life were accompanied by the performance of the famous pieces, such as "Black Eyes", "From Dawn to Dawn" and gypsy dances.
Musicians from the UK, Russia, Germany, and the Baltic states introduced the guests of the evening to various types of lyrical songs. The differences between gypsy, urban, cruel, classical, everyday, whiteguard, Cossack and salon lyrical songs were demonstrated with pieces performed on stage.
The evening was organized by Margarita Markova.
