Butman and Khabensky’s performance will be shown at the Moscow Jazz Festival 14:38

Jazzman Igor Butman and the Moscow Jazz Orchestra, together with actor Konstantin Khabensky, will present an updated version of the musical fairy tale based on Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”. The organizing committee of the festival informed socialbites.ca about this.

The performance will be presented at the closing of the third international Moscow Jazz Festival on June 16 at the Zaryadye Concert Hall. The tale will be performed with Christina Krit’s original jazz arrangements. Users of the Odnoklassniki social network in the festival group will have access to exclusive information about the future performance, videos of rehearsals, stories about how Prokofiev is connected with jazz and much more.

According to Butman, Prokofiev greatly influenced the further development of jazz without being a jazzman, as many musicians are inspired by his music.

“It was no coincidence that we chose Konstantin Khabensky as the reader: he is a wonderful actor, he has a very keen sense of music and, moreover, he already knows this musical fairy tale very well. We are currently actively rehearsing a new program. It is very important to approach this work with care: preserving Prokofiev’s style, but at the same time bringing something of our own, jazz,” says the saxophonist.

From June 11 to 15, subscribers of the festival group in OK will have access to exclusive live broadcasts of the Educational program organized in partnership with the Russian Information Society, as well as performances by the festival’s leading figures such as Igor Butman and the Moscow Jazz Orchestra, Dhafer. Youssef (Tunisia), Richard Bona (USA), Avishai Cohen (Israel), Konstantin Khabensky, Dmitry Malikov with the Pianomaniya Jazz program, Viktor Dobronravov and the Kinoproektor ensemble, Roberto Fonseca (Cuba), Medzhikul, Jukebox trio and others.
