BG+ Symphonia

"Sometimes an orchestra can express secrets that electricity can't reach!"

Boris Grebenshchikov will play a series of concerts with a symphony orchestra in Europe in late 2023 as part of BG+ Symphonia.

Boris Grebenshchikov, the world-famous leader of the band Aquarium, is not only a talented musician, poet and artist, but also a symbol of creative freedom, capable of overcoming borders and merging different cultures in a single powerful artistic gesture. In his irrepressible love of experimentation, he surprises his fans time and time again with new forms of his performances. This time in Vienna, Hasselt, Paris, Zurich, Berlin and Prague , theBG+Symphoniaprogram will be presented , featuring old and brand new songs by Aquarium as well as instrumental works written especially for this project, accompanied by a symphony orchestra .

Looking back at the history of Aquarium, symphonic arrangements have been heard in individual songs since the 1984 album Silver Day, and in 2012 the composition Faunus was recorded in London with the Royal Symphony Orchestra - a mixture of song and suite.

"...The symphonic theme in Aquarium has never disappeared. Sometimes the orchestra can express secrets that electricity cannot reach. ...I myself am curious - I want to hear what I don't know."
