Event

Tatiana & Sergey Nikitin Sing for Children
Tatiana and Sergey Nikitin are among the most well-known and revered folk music singing duos in Russia. If one has never heard them, however, it is not easy to define the musical genre that they have helped create over the years. They are equally at home sharing the stage with Pete Seeger, a jazz ensemble, or a symphony orchestra. Indeed, the Nikitin's music lends itself to instrumental interpretation, featuring a variety of styles, from classical to jazz to Russian village chant.

When Tatiana and Sergey Nikitin are on stage, the means of expression are sparing: a seven-stringed guitar and two voices. So what is the secret of their success  millions of records sold, high accolades from the Russian government, sold-out performances around the world, several generations of Russian children who have grown up listening to their songs? Perhaps, the it is their impeccable taste in poetry that Sergey puts to music  from William Shakespeare to Boris Pasternak. Or maybe, it is the insightful musical treatment that poetry receives in the Nikitins' renditions  when the sole purpose is to bring out the melody already ripe in verse. Or perhaps, it is their conversational tone, as though they were among friends, their utter lack of all artificial show biz luster, while professionalism of the highest level rules supreme?

However we define their musical genre  folk song, poetry put to music, musical theatre  the fact is, Tatiana and Sergey Nikitin are among the very few artists in any country who have transcended the limits of the genre that they themselves once helped to establish.
