The dates of the milestone fifth “Days of Flemish Music in St. Petersburg” festival have been announced. From July 3 through 11, 2004, concerts of choral, organ, and chamber music will be held at different venues of our city. The focus will be the ‘Carnival of Animals’ program, in which we will hear the famous opus by Camille Saint-Saëns and pieces by today’s composers from Belgium, Brazil, France, and Russia. All the new opuses are dedicated to the 'animal' theme and written for the same set of instruments as the music of Saint-Saëns, i.e. two pianos, string quartet, percussion, doublebass, flute, and clarinet.
