Bolshoi Don Cossacks

During the Christmas season, the popular male choir of the Bolshoi Don Cossacks brings a piece of Russian music history to Berlin.

The trained opera soloists resent the musical tradition of the Don Cossacks. Thir basic repertoire consists of sacred chants and Russian as well as Ukrainian folk songs. From the softest pianissimo to the loudest forte, the artists use not only their chorales but also their feeling with precision.

For 40 years Petya Houdjakov has been leading the choir and traveling the world with the musicians. The 85-year-old was one of the few artists to be awarded the prestigious Pushkin Medal. At Christmas time, the Don Cossacks' program is enriched with festive songs. Thus, in addition to songs such as "Evening Bell", "Volga-Volga" or "Red Saffron", traditional Christmas melodies will also be heard. With a little luck, the audience will experience one or the other opera aria in between. Instrumentally, the singers are accompanied by the balalaika, a typical Russian plucked instrument, and the harmonica "Aleksandra".
