Daniil Bulayev accompanied by Davinspiro camerata, a chamber orchestra created by himself, will perform a diverse, emotionally charged programme with a bit melancholy. Grigory Kovalevsky, experienced and remarkable double bass player, will play alongside the young musicians. In the concert the listeners will hear joyful Four Seasons by Vivaldi – the famous cycle based on Italian sonnets and quite likely the author was Vivaldi himself. Chant of birds, blissful peasants, nymphs and changing seasons – all of that is heard in this music. There will also be The Seasons by Tchaikovsky. Composer put each month of the year in music with a characteristic mood or occasion. At the time, Saint-Petersbourg’s magazine Nouvellist ordered the Russian composer a music cycle and  each month a corresponding piece of The Seasons was published. At last, there will be Four Seasons of Buenos Aires written by Astor Piazzolla. This melancholic music, full of passion, will resonate with the deepest strings of heart.

Davinspiro camerata is a string chamber orchestra founded by Daniil Bulayev that unites most talented young Latvian musicians studying in Latvia and abroad. Daniil has chosen a repertoire in which he can show his soloist qualities and play in close partnership with orchestra musicians. The voice of his violin will merge with other instruments as Daniil will also be the leader of performance. That is an advantage that arises when orchestra leader and other musicians are closely collaborating.
