Join us on Saturday, November 14th at 2pm (NY) 8pm (Rome) for an unforgettable musical journey as soprano Natalia Pavlova and organist Alessandra Ciccaglioni draw you into a world of sacred vocal and organ music from Italian, English and German baroque times to the present.
The concert will be broadcast live from the beautiful historical Church of St. Alphonsus Liguori in the center of Rome, one of the rare examples of neo-Gothic architecture in Rome and one of the last papal churches in the city. Below the mosaic hangs the original icon of 'Our Lady of Perpetual Help', famous throughout the world, which was produced in Crete in the 14th century.
What's the music?
We will perform the music of A. Scarlatti, J.S. Bach, A. Vivaldi, G. F. Handel, W. A. Mozart, G. Verdi, very rare arias by C. Saint-Saëns and Nino Rota, as well as an aria by Iraida Yusupova " Salve Dolce Vergine".
Moscow and Rome-based soprano Natalia Pavlova (who is a descendant of Russian national poet Alexander Pushkin) has graced the stages of Carnegie Hall, Moscow Chaikovsky State Conservatory, Auditorium Parco della Musica (Rome), and many others throughout the world.
Active in performing music from antiquity to today, she was a soloist for 6 years in the Moscow theater School of Dramatic Art, directed by Anatoly Vasiliev. Natalia has sung world premiere performances and recordings of works by composers Giovanni Sollima, Venus Rey and Iraida Yusupova, composed specially for her voice, as well as pieces by Vladimir Martynov. She serves on Artistic Council of The First Cultural International Festival, Russian-Rome, Palazzo Poli in Rome, and was recently awarded the Silver Lion at the Narnia International Festival, as well as the International "Clean Sound" Award.
