The recital is devoted to the works of the State Prize Laureate, Honored Figure of Art, People’s Artist of Kazakhstan, composer, professor, Mynzhassar Mangitayev. His musical talent was obvious to his contemporaries: Mynzhassar Mangitayev was accepted into the composition class of Almaty Conservatory without special education. The talent of the composer was manifested in various genres: from chamber to large stage compositions for musical theater. He created the symphonic poems of “Arman” and “Kulager”, the oratorio of “Immortal Love”, “Otyrar Shaiqasy” opera, “Maqtashylar” musical, “Aqsaq Kulan”, “Na Dzhailau”, “Singes of Karatau” choral poems, etc.
The songs and romances by Mynzhassar Mangitayev are especially popular. They will be performed during “Qazaqstan, Menin” concert. The composer has written over 150 songs and romances of various themes: the patriotic “Qazaqstan Menin”, “Yelim Menin”, lyrical “Algashqy Makhabbat”, “Aq Saule”, “Sagynysh”, etc.
Art critics write that “the attractiveness of M. Mangitayev’s music is largely related to his rich melodic gift, which manifested itself in works of various genres” (G. Dzholamanova), as well as the organic “merger of vocal and folk-instrumental beginnings in the modern refraction of his music” (www.elim.kz).
The concert is held within “Rukhani Zhangyru” program in order to preserve, develop and promote the historical and cultural heritage.
