NAZYM ALASH, ITALIAN SPECTATOR:
- In the morning, I read a message in a newspaper saying that an orchestra from Kazakhstan will visit the city with a concert program. Immediately, I started searching online for information about the venue and the tickets. I told all my friends about the upcoming concert. I came to the concert with great pleasure and I am very pleased to see my fellow-countrymen and speak my mother language.
The musicians of the ‘Academy of Soloists’ presented Kazakh traditional songs and classical compositions to the Italian public. The unique melodies and artistic presentation captivated the audience. The spectators were impressed by the performances and gave a round of applause to the musicians. According the Italian public, they were fascinated by the music of the Great Steppe.
