Russian Holiday Bells - Saturday, December 22nd, 2018
Please San Francisco Main Public Library for a unique event featuring the majestic sound of Russian bells. San Francisco Symphony’s extraordinary guest percussionist, Mr. Avdienko will play a peal of 6 Traditional Russian Bells, accompanied by 2 bass Russian Flat Bells (bila). The traditional bells were cast in 2014 in Urals at Nikolai Pyatkov’s bell foundry. Newly introduced bila were made in Moscow in 2017 by their inventor Alexander Zhikharev and the Russian bell instrument (zvonnitsa) was built in 2015 by Blagovest Bells of Novato, California– the sole promoter of Russian bells and bell ringing in the U.S.
The program of the concert will include several traditional chimes, a few contemporary pieces, and some improvisations.
