This summer we are hosting our fifth edition and are delighted to delight our audience with real Cossack performers and to immerse them in Russian COSSack folk history for 45 minutes.

The Moscow Night of Podmoskovnye vechera belongs to a famous composer of the Soviet era, Sergei Slonimsky. He wrote this music in the late 1930s and early 1940s in collaboration with his wife Irina. Enjoy a recording of "Irina" with bass by Igor Gavrilov, written and recorded by SergeiSlonimky, with a live performance of his band.
Russia's second city, St. Petersburg, was built at the beginning of the 20th century, which is still young compared to most cities in Russia; in fact, it was called Leningrad for three years in 1927. The song "Rumour of St. Petersburg" shows the inhabitants of the city during the decade after the revolution of 1917. This choir was founded in Moscow in 1479, but was transferred to St. Petersburg in 1703 by Peter the Great and is home to the oldest music group in the city. The master Valery Gergiev made the orchestra, ballet and opera company one of the most famous Russian performing arts organizations.
On the website of the Russian Academy of Music there is a webdomain with the title "Classical Music of St. Petersburg." The Psalter Class is led by the famous pianist, composer, conductor and composer of classical music Sergei Rachmaninoff.
If you are not a big fan of classical music, I recommend you to see the St. Petersburg Concert Choir. If you want something different and a little more intimate than the concert choirs of other cities, this is the place to be.
This acclaimed institution invites young and established talents from Europe and regularly hosts highly decorated concerts with excellent acoustics and excellent acoustic sound. Like the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, this venue has some of the best musical instruments available, which make for unconventional concerts such as Jazz meets Bach and Christmas concerts. This makes the musical life in this Siberian city diverse and rich.
The St. Petersburg Conservatory is a fitting tribute to the talent it has nurtured, and it is staffed by one of the most prestigious music schools in the world, the Russian Academy of Music. The Russian metropolis also houses a music school that has produced countless international stars. It was the musical capital of the former Leningrad region, as well as countless cultural artifacts. If you walk down Nevsky Prospekt (Piter - rok - roll), you will meet buskers everywhere in the city.
The concert, sponsored by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Society, used a ball used by nobility from 1839 to 1917. Many successful concerts were given in the city, including famous Petersburg composers such as Sergei Rachmaninov, Igor Stravinsky and Alexander Pushkin. Valentine Osipov is a regular conductor of concerts and takes part in some of the best performances of various ensembles in Russia. He is now a professor at the Russian Academy of Music and one of the most renowned music schools in Russia.
He has performed frequently in St. Petersburg and Tampa and is currently on the Florida Orchestra's drum replacement list. He also played percussion with Hanson il Divo and has performed with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Symphony, as well as with various orchestras in the United States and other countries.
Soviet music was dominated by Sergei Prokofiev, who returned from post-revolutionary emigration in the mid-1930s, and Dmitri Shostakovich, who spent his entire career in Soviet Russia. Russian performing arts are represented by many others today, but the St. Petersburg Conservatory is home to Vladislav Chernushenko, one of the celebrated conductors, who is also director of the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra and the Russian Academy of Music. He was educated at the Conservatory in the 1970s and was also assistant conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Boston Symphony and Los Angeles Symphony.
Tchaikovsky is buried in one of the most famous cemeteries in St. Petersburg, and Mariinsky went in as a little boy. He returned to Dallas to work in the audiovisual industry for a few years before moving to St. Petersburg and becoming music director of the Russian Academy of Music and a member of the board of directors.
From 2007 to 2013 he was artistic director and chief conductor of the orchestra and was awarded the honorary title of academic director, which was only bestowed in Russia to selected music collectives. Vayner is a member of the Board of Directors of the Russian Academy of Music and also Chairman of the Board of Directors.
Sasha Boldachev began his musical studies at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, where he was taught by Lillya Mishukova. Clara Rockmore, then in Reisenberg, was an outstanding violinist, as was her brother-in-law, violinist and pianist Yevgeny Kuznetsov. This initial effort, combined with the efforts of composers Nikolai Gavrielov and Yitzhok Shlomo, soon inspired the Society for Jewish Folk Music, which was founded in 1908.
