    Magical oboe

    2019 Thursday, April 9, 19:00 St. Catherine’s Church (Vilniaus str. 30)

    Tickets here

    Oboe – it’s an instrument with a miraculous, hypnotic voice that will enslave even the biggest skeptic. In comparison with other modern wooden instruments, oboe sometimes is referred to as having a clear, magical and deep voice. Still in 1695 The Sprightly Companion, an instruction book published by Henry Playford, describes the oboe as “Majestic and Stately” No wonder, with its help the sorcerers hypnotized the snakes.

    This time works of A. Vivaldi, J. S. Bach, T. von Schacht, A. Honegger, J. Francaix will reveal unearthly, majestic sound of oboe. We invite you to spend the evening in a special way – listening to the exclusive oboe music concert, which like a magic wand raises a sense of spiritual lightness that lifts up a soul.
