The 9th Moscow Music Festival «Vladimir Spivakov Invites…»

The Svetlanov Hall of the Moscow International Performing Arts Center
October 1 – December 28, 2017

The “Vladimir Spivakov Invites...” Moscow Music Festival was first held in autumn 2001 and immediately manifested its features of a top-quality remarkable project. With his many years' experience of the Colmar Festival (France), Vladimir Spivakov had long cherished the dream of realizing such an enterprise in his homeland. He conceived a festival which does not follow the whole gamut of the largest music forums in Europe, but matches the best of them in terms of performance level and is aimed at an intelligent and demanding audience.

The Ninth "Vladimir Spivakov Invites ..." Festival will open at the Moscow International Performing Arts Center on October 1 and close on December 28, 2017. It promises again to be a memorable event in the cultural life of the Russian capital, a rendezvous with world-class performers, a multi-faceted mirror reflecting the artistic aspirations of Vladimir Spivakov, an outstanding musician and a public figure. "It's not the number of festival concerts, which is important, but the opportunity to show in Moscow what I love myself: something new, diverse in genres and styles, ingenious, talented," says the Maestro.
