The world-famous musicians Alexei Aigui and Keisuke Ohta (Japan) will play a joint show at Erarta Stage on November 30.
Alexei Aigui and Keisuke Ohta will show the audience an unequalled level of improvisation and playing in duet. The meeting of two famous violinists and composers was supposed to take place in 2011, but the terrible earthquake in Tokyo didn't let it happen. One year after the Japan Foundation invited Alexei Aigui to visit Japan and he managed to play the first concert with Keisuke Ohta. The performance was a great success; the musicians quickly found a common language and decided to repeat the show in Russia.
Alexei Aigui is a Russian violinist and composer, founder of avant outfit ENSEMBLE 4'33'', known also from other collaborations and projects as the duos with German pianist Dietmar Bonnen and French composer Pierre Bastien. His work comprises original compositions (modern fusions, contemporary chamber music, soundtracks...) and interpretations on works of other composers (Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Weill...). Mixing his classical, jazz, prog culture with contemporary forms, Aigui creates interesting sounds, the emotional quality of which often echoes a deep relation to slavic folk lyricism.
Keisuke Ohta is an outstanding violinist, singer and composer. He plays in the famous Japanese free jazz the Shibusashirazu Orchestra led by Daisuke Fuwa, which has recently performed in Russia with great success.
