The iconic rock band Queen still has millions of fans all over the world. Their hit songs Show Must Go On, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, and Love of My Life are a staple of radio stations even today. The idea to decorate these and other songs of the band with jazz hues was developed by the lead Russian saxophone player, one of the most impressive soloists-improvisers Anton Rumyantsev. He will be presenting the Queen in Jazz programme in cooperation with the Honoured Artist Daniil Kramer. This project was already duly appreciated, not only by Russian music lovers, but also foreign audiences.

The audience will be treated to the most popular songs of Queen. Musicians of the Hermitage Ensemble of Soloists will contribute to the completeness of the performance, and the magical passages of brilliant jazz piano player Daniil Kramer will bring unique colours to this music!

"I fell in love with the songs by Queen when I was in primary school," says Anton Rumyantsev. "These were tough times, and the spirit of freedom was especially strongly felt in this music. I am glad that we are a big hit for the audiences of the Queen in Jazz programme. Every composition is warmly greeted. And, first of all, this is thanks to the Queen Band. For our part, we treated the material as reverently as possible, we tried to make our versions "prettier" with stringed instruments, and added original entrances of the chamber orchestra for every composition. Thus, the music of Queen is played in fresh colours!"
