The Misailov Neapolitan ensemble is a unique orchestra with more than 60 years' history.
The first Neapolitan ensemble was founded in 1946 by Nikolay Dmitrievich Misailov (1899-1976) at the all-USSR Radio Station as its professional ensemble. At that time, N.D. Misailov was working for the A.V. Alexandrov Russian army twice red-bannered academic song and dance ensemble. Several most prominent singers collaborated with the Neapolitan ensemble -- such as Nadezhda Obukhova, Sergey Lemeshev, etc.
During Stalin's campaign against "rootless cosmopolitans" this ensemble was dissolved and N.D. Misailov was retired. In 1957, he was invited to the recreation center of the Bauman Moscow Highest Technical School, where he founded an amateur ensemble and ran it until the end of his life.
The restored Neapolitan ensemble gained the popularity of the professional orchestra it had been named after. It enjoyed a great success and went on numerous tours throughout the country.
In 1976, after Nikolay Dmitrievich Misailov's decease, his son, Eugeny Nikolaevich Misailov (1932-2007) became the leader of the orchestra. His main affiliation was, like his father's, the Alexandrov Russian army academic song and dance ensemble.
Having led the ensemble for more that 30 years, Eugeny Nikolaevich Misailov has enlarged its repertoire with his original instrumentations and musical pieces, and added new groups of instruments to the orchestra.
Since the fall of 2007 the ensemble is headed by Mikhail Podgaysky, who had been its concertmaster and a 1st mandolin player since 1977.
The Neapolitan orchestra is famous for its unique combination of groups of instruments. Beside traditional Neapolitan instruments -- such as mandolins, guitars, accordions -- it includes classic instruments (violins, cellos, contrabass, piano, flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet) and modern instruments typical for pop-music (electric guitar, bass guitar, synthesizer, drum kit).
The repertoire of the ensemble includes compositions of different genres, styles and epochs: it lists classic works, Neapolitan and Spanish songs and instrumental pieces, Russian romance, Soviet and pop-music. During a season, up to 8 concerts are given. The ensemble's concerts usually consist of two parts, each containing 10 instrumental pieces and 16 songs. About 50 musicians take part in each concert, but as for sometimes the ensemble is joined by proficient musicians and soloists, the participants' number approaches 70 people.
In the spring of 2007, the ensemble released its CD-album, consisting of two programs: "Neapolitan and Spanish Songs and Music" and "Old Russian Romance".
The ensemble's main concert venue is the concert hall of the Bauman Moscow State Technical University.
The orchestra has went on tour abroad three times. In 1993, it went to Braunschweig, Germany, in 2004, it had concerts in Blanes, Spain, and in 2007, it performed in Italy (Caserta -Naples -- Castallamare-di-Stabia). Every time it enjoyed a cordial welcome of the local audience.
The Neapolitan ensemble is frequently given various awards at musical competitions and festivals. With its cast changing, its repertoire being consistently renewed, the ensemble preserves the atmosphere of love to the Music and keeps faithful to its traditions. Over the last 50 years of its history, the Neapolitan ensemble has gained numerous friends and admirers, its performances enjoy a consistent appeal.
