           The program of May 29 will be dedicated to contemporary Belgian music in Mihail Chemiakin Art
           Gallery. This event will be a great first opportunity for the St. Petersburg public to discover new
           Belgian music in one of the most exciting venues of the city. The program for the concert will be
           comprised of Belgian and Dutch compositions, such as by Henri Pousseur who sought the synthesis
           of sound and image and wrote the famous opera Votre Faust, with libretto by Michel Butor. The
           program also includes the work of Ton de Leeuw, famous for his experiments with microtonality, and
           Martijn Padding for flute and piano, which will be undoubtedly interesting for the Russian listener,
           who has yet to discover this movement in modern music. Other works will include the composers
           Haofu Zhang, Michel Lysight, Karel Goeyvaerts, Sebastian Bradt, Michel Lysight and Jean-Luc
           The concert will be performed by the Belgian trio “Mangalam”: Anne Davids (flute), Tomonori
           Takeda (clarinet), and Charlote Otte (piano), coming to Russia for the first time. Concert entry will be
           open free of charge by “” for the convenience of the public. The trio features a group of
           musicians striving to make people discover contemporary music in a new and different way. The
           name of the ensemble is a word in Sanskrit that says much about the aesthetic style of the
           musicians: an interest in West and East, and the exoticism of diversity.
