Vladimir Spivakov and the NPR Will Visit Five Russian Towns

From February 21 to March 1, 2023, Vladimir Spivakov and the NPR will tour Russia, giving seven concerts in five towns. The first two days the Moscow musicians will be hosted by the Bashkortostan State Concert Hall in Ufa. Then the maestro and his orchestra will go for a concert to Salavat (the Neftekhimic House of Culture). Ufa is one of the few Russian cities where the “Vladimir Spivakov Invites...” Festival takes place on a regular basis with the NPR as an active participant, while to Salavat the NPR will come now after a six-year interval.

The concerts on February 25-26 will be given in the Great Concert Hall of the Orenburg Philharmonic Society. The tour will go on with a performance at the Concert Hall of the Samara Philharmonic Society on February 28 and will end on March 1 in Ulyanovsk at the Great Hall of the Lenin Memorial.

The tour program features works by Georges Bizet - Rodion Shchedrin, Gabriel Fauré, Jacques Ibert, Maurice Ravel, Dmitri Shostakovich, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Aram Khachaturian and Sergei Rachmaninoff (see Events). The concerts will be shared by the NPR with the 12-year-old pianist and composer Roman Sher, student of the Gnessins Moscow Music School, already winner of the Nutcracker Television Competition and the Sergei Rachmaninoff Competition, holder of seven special awards of the Vladimir Krainev Moscow Piano Competition, and Ekaterina Mechetina, a Merited Artist of Russia, winner of many international competitions, assistant professor in the Moscow Conservatory and concerting pianist.

The tour will be held within the framework of the All-Russian Philharmonic Seasons Project of the Moscow Philharmonic Society and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
