Band History:
Anima was organised in October 1992 in St. Petersburg. All its members are the graduates of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire named after Rimsky-Korsakov N.A., graduating it in different years. From the very first days after its debut the Ensemble has extensively performed both in Russia and abroad, visiting Germany, Finland, Austria and France. The press on the Ensemble performances is numerous and favourable, the Group has been called an admirable ensemble of the world class.
The Ensemble's creative credo implies a wide variety of genres of choir music: from Gregorian Chorales to modern pieces. The prime criterium when choosing a composition of a certain epoch to be performed by by the Group is its artistic value rather than its novelty or complexity. The Ensemble performs fragments from Tchaikovsky's and Rakhmaninov's Divine Liturgy and Vespers, spiritual works of P. Tchesnokov, original arrangements of popular Russian folk songs. Originally composed for a mixed choir these works are presented in a quite different and original way arranged for male voices only by the Ensemble Leader Victor Smirnov with the emphasis on the Ensemble tessitura ability, A. Gorbatenko with his unique contra-tenor voice adds to this effect allowing the Ensemble to sing original works composed for a mixed choir like "Natasha" by G. Sviridov, Choir cycles of F. Pulenk "Praises to st. Anthony of Padua" and "Prayers of st. Francis of Assisi" that are famous for its fine sense of style.
Diversity of styles is the Ensemble's forte. The Ensemble is equally artistic performing Russian music and West European spiritual works, madrigals of the Renaissance and avant-garde musical works of today.
In March 1999 the Ensemble was merited at the International Choir Competition in Darmstadt, Germany, winning two gold medals there. The members of the Ensemble are capable of giving recitals with participation of soloists, thus in October 1999 it performed Pastoral Mass by A. Diabelli, while in November the Ensemble gave a very successful performance of Petersburg Mass, composed jointly by Iogannes Iordan, German poet and composer, together with "Anima" Vocal Ensemble.
Search for new ways in the synthesis of choir singing with other artistic expressions, with theatre in particular, results in interesting experiments. In December 1999 there was a first night performance of the PARISER HOF (Wiesbaden Theatre, Germany) in which the "Anima" Ensemble participated. The success of the project was due to admirable performance of the opera arias and its excellent artistic work.
The Ensemble has a lot of admirers, if you listen to them once, you would become their ardent supporters for life.
The Ensemble has good contacts with musicians from western Europe and with their Russian colleagues.
The "Anima" Ensemble has the pleasure to invite musicians and impresario to cooperate with it and welcomes the musicians to participate in their concerts.
In 1993, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2004 "Anima" recorded six compact discs combining Russian and French spiritual music with folk songs from six centuries. On the fifth anniversary of its creation, the ensemble now presents another CD, intended as a "Thank you" to all its friends and promoters for their continued support of "Anima".
