A musical journey to Kazakhstan was created for the audience at the concert of the Exemplary Band of the National Guard of the Republic of Kazakhstan
The history of the country, its culture, and traditions told in music evoked vivid emotions. “This is a wonderful concert.
We felt the musicians’ pride in and love for their country. This is the only way to convey this message”, one of the audience members shared her impressions after the concert. “It’s fabulous! Amazing! This is a military band but after the concert we feel a pervading sense of peace and serenity as if they are the Messengers of Peace. Their music is full of love for us, for their country,” another spectator supported her.
Lyrics and music by Kazakh authors were performed on the stage of the Khabarovsk Regional Musical Theatre. Military musicians played a potpourri of famous Kazakh songs and kuis, national songs performed on the dombra. Balzhan Makaev, the soloist of the ensemble, demonstrated his master ability to play the national instrument.
The concert programme had a strong focus on friendship that unites different peoples of the world and partnership relations between Kazakhstan and Russia. “Kazakhstan was the first CIS country to enter into an agreement with Russia on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance on May 25, 1992. The countries are committed to actively develop partnerships in the field of economy, culture, and sport,” said the concert master.
At the end of the concert the spectators rose to thank the musicians for their soulful performance with warm rounds of applause.
