For 27 years, the Kazan Chamber Orchestra La Primavera has collected a large music library, which consists of famous scores and absolutely unique scores, specially created for the concerts of the orchestra. Now there are more than 500 of such orchestrations in the orchestra's archive.
"We thought it would be wrong if these scores serve only us and decided to open access to our unique music collection for everyone," says the artistic director and chief conductor of the orchestra, Rustem Abyazov.
The maestro himself made a significant part of the arrangements.
"We have already performed all the famous compositions for chamber orchestras that exist in the world. Such music is much rare than music for large symphony orchestras. I really wanted to enlarge our repertoire. And my second education as a composer really helped me, " said Abyazov.
The virtual library will be open around the clock on the website of the orchestra. Its content will be constantly updated. Here you will find well-known masterpieces of world music, contemporary music and music of Tatar composers.
By posting notes of our wonderful composers, we hope that they will be interesting not only to Russian, Tatarstan musicians, but also to colleagues abroad. After all, the Internet is removing the boundaries," said R. Abyazov.
La Primavera orchestra music library is free of charge. In the orchestra they say that they will be grateful to their colleagues if, when using the notes, they will remember to mention the authorship of the orchestrations.
