“Vladimir Spivakov Invites…” Festival in Omsk and Perm

As previously, Vladimir Spivakov and the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia are completing the 2018/19 season with tours in Russia, combining 8 concerts into the next edition of the Maestro's traditional Festival. The performances will take place in Omsk on June 1-3 and in Perm on June 5-9. The tour program features musical masterpieces of the 18th - 20th centuries, from Mozart to Artemyev (for detail, see the CONCERTS section).

The “Vladimir Spivakov invites ...” Festival will be hosted in Omsk for the eighth time (since 2012), in Perm - for the tenth (since 2010). The event is produced within the framework of the “All-Russian Philharmonic Seasons” Project supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Culture, Youth Policy and Mass Communications of Perm Krai and the Government of Omsk Oblast.

At the 2019 Festival Edition, Vladimir Spivakov will again present stars of performing arts, who are at the peak of their artistic form, and talented young musicians, who are gaining their place on the musical Olympus. Andrey Korobeynikov, a piano virtuoso, Ekaterina Morozova (soprano), a soloist of the Bolshoi Theatre, Alexey Neklyudov (tenor), a soloist of the Moscow “Novaya Opera” Theatre, jazz trumpeter Vadim Eilenkrig will perform as soloists with the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia. Two concerts in Omsk and Perm will present young talented musicians - Alexandra Dovgan, Roman Borisov and Valentin Malinin, award-winners of the Vladimir Krainev Moscow International Piano Competition.

A special gift to Perm citizens will be the 7th June program dedicated to the works by Vivaldi and Mozart, where Vladimir Spivakov will appear not only as a conductor, directing the performance of Cantatas and Oratorios, but also as a soloist in the Violin Concerto. The program will also feature singers from leading Moscow opera houses and the Academic Grand Choir “Masters of Choral Singing” under the direction of Lev Kontorovich.
