Сoncerts of the event will take place at the Svetlanov Hall of the Moscow International Performing Arts Center and Tchaikovsky Concert Hall. The Festival, organized in 2001, is a bright example of a successful art project with its own style, priorities and a consistently widening audience. “For me, it is not the number of festival concerts that matters, but the opportunity to show in Moscow what I love myself: something new, in different genres and styles, inimitable, talented,” says Vladimir Spivakov.
