The Big Jazz Orchestra

The Big Jazz Orchestra
Gold jazz rush, the time of swing and kilometer-long queues to dance halls - such an atmosphere is resurrected at their concerts by the Big Jazz Orchestra. Recreating the authentic sound of the music of that time, using original scores and old instruments, the Orchestra presents its listeners with unique programs of its kind dedicated to the "outstanding giants" of orchestral jazz from completely different eras and directions: from Paul Whiteman's sweet jazz of the 20s to late rock Buddy Rich's 60s, from entertaining dance swing to serious large-scale compositions - the suites of Duke Ellington, from the classic mambo Tito Puente and Perez Prado to jazz interpretations of the music of the Beatles.
 
The Big Jazz Orchestra includes almost the entire avant-garde of the Moscow jazz scene and like-minded people in music, graduates of the Russian Academy of Music. Gnesins. The founders of the Orchestra are singer Daria Antonova and trumpeter Pyotr Vostokov.
 
The debut of the Orchestra took place in October 2010 on the stage of the Central House of Journalists in Moscow. And already in April 2011, BDO received the Grand Prix at the international competition for young performers "Usadba-Jazz". In the same year he became a laureate of the first international jazz festival of young performers "Gnesin Jazz". From 2012 to the present, the Orchestra has been a resident of the legendary jazz club "Esse" and a regular guest of various Russian and international jazz festivals ("Triumph of Jazz", "Jazz in the Hermitage Garden", "Usadba-Jazz", "Russian Stars of the World Jazz", "Koktebel Jazz Party", "What an amazing world", "JazzMay", etc.), performs in the most prestigious halls of the capital, including the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, the Svetlanov Hall of the International House of Music, the State Kremlin Palace.
