Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble
In Voices of Frozen Land, the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble looks to Russia, through collaborations with the composer Alexander Raskatov and Russia’s most renowned traditional music group, the Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble.
The programme features compositions by Alexander Raskatov on the theme of Russia – the ‘frozen land’. Both Voices of frozen Land and In Nomine were written especially for the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble and for this programme. Together with the other works they form an organic whole.
The Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble came to the Netherlands for the first time to work with the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble, performing both Alexander Raskatov’s contemporary compositions and old Russian songs.
