In June 2018, 16 (male and female) singers gathered to record demo tracks for the choirbook »Russia a capella«, commissioned by the renowned publisher Helbling. The outcome was so convincing that the publisher decided to use the recordings to produce a CD. This was when the vocal ensemble »Agios« came into being.
While the ensemble itself may still be quite young, some of the friendships between the ensemble members go back decades, even to their school and university years. All members of the ensemble received an excellent musical training at the best educational institutions of the former Soviet Union and all found their second home here in Germany. By now, they are successfully working in Germany as conductors, vocal soloists and music teachers – from Leipzig to Bonn, Cologne and Stuttgart.
The ensemble understands itself first and foremost as a project ensemble and its initiator Pavel Brochin, choir conductor and publisher of the choirbook »Russia a capella«, sees himself less as the ensemble leader, but more as a source of ideas for it. The name »Agios« (Άγιος) derives from Greek and means »holy«. It is with this word, that one of the oldest Christian hymns begins, which today still forms an essential part of the orthodox liturgy, the Trisagion.
