The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia will take part in the VIII All-Russian Festival "Vladimir Spivakov Invites ..." in the Perm Region. The Orchestra's concerts under the baton of Vladimir Spivakov will be held  on May 23-27, 2017,  at the Great Hall of the Perm  Philharmonic Society  and at the Center for Creativity and Leisure in Polazna.

Vladimir Spivakov: "Our repeated visits convinced us that Perm is an advanced city that owns a remarkable philharmonic society. Not  every region or oblast centre can boast of such  philharmonic activities.  And the audience there is  grateful, well-prepared and  intelligent, subtly following the nuances of a performance ... ".
The All-Russian Festival "Vladimir Spivakov Invites ..." has become a landmark event in the musical life of the Kama region. Among the participants of this year's Festival  there are titled musicians and rising stars: the violinist from Germany Clara-Jumi Kang, who became a sensation of the 15th Tchaikovsky International  Competition in Moscow; Roman Borisov, a 14-year-old pianist from Novosibirsk, a prize-winner  of the First Vladimir Krainev Moscow International Piano Competition and more than ten other contests, an awardee of Denis Matsuev's scholarship;  Ekaterina Mechetina, a famous Russian pianist; Anna Aglatova, a soloist of the Bolshoi; Ksenia Nesterenko and Tigran Ohanian, the finalists of the "The Grand Opera" TV Project ; and  famous jazz trumpeter Vadim Eilenkrig. All the concerts  of the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia will be conducted by its  Artistic Director  Vladimir Spivakov.
In order to make the music culture accessible to  most diverse social strata of the population, the Perm Philharmonic Society organizes online broadcasts of the Festival concerts within the framework of the Virtual Hall Project.

9th Moscow Music Festival «Vladimir Spivakov Invites…»

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.
