The Hermitage Ensemble of St. Petersburg

The Hermitage Ensemble of St. Petersburg

The Hermitage Ensemble is a male voice group of five professional singers from St. Petersburg who specialise in performing choral music from the great Russian Orthodox tradition together with Russian folk songs.

The male voices will include the spine-tingling, uniquely Russian, deep tones of a basso profundo and the ensemble is directed by world famous Russian pianist Natalia Aksuticheva, a Sviridov Contest first prize winner. The Ensemble performs a capella and aims to bring motets and music of the Eastern Church and Russian folk music closer to Western people.

The Hermitage Ensemble has performed in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Australia, France, Holland, the USA, South Africa, China and Canada.
