About the event
ZINGARESCA ENSEMBLE is a product of collaboration between the celebrated Roma (Gypsy) virtuoso Vadim Kolpakov, the pioneer in the revival of the seven-string guitar Oleg Timofeyev, and the Juilliard-trained baritone Anton Belov. The Italian word “Zingaresca” means “in a Gypsy style”: the ensemble interweaves the classical Eastern European guitar heritage with the best traditions of the Romani diaspora, thus blending the sophistication of classical music with the fiery vitality of folk musical expression.
