"...The symphonic theme in Aquarium has never disappeared. Sometimes the orchestra can express
mysteries that electricity can't reach. ...I am curious myself - I want to hear something I don't know".
In addition to Boris Grebenshchikov and the symphony orchestra, musicians from the band BG+ will also
be on stage: Konstantin Tumanov (keyboards, accordion), Alexander Titov (bass guitar), Brian Finnegan
(flutes), Liam Bradley (drums), Andrei Surotdinov (violin) and Gleb Grebenshikov (percussion).
