Tchaikovsky will be the grand opening of the VIII International Festival of Mstislav Rostropovich, established in 2010 in memory of the great cellist and conductor, citizen and public figure. The artistic director of the Festival is Olga Rostropovich. Over the past years, more than 30 orchestras, 90 soloists, 9 choirs, and 30 conductors have participated in the International Festival of Mstislav Rostropovich in Moscow. The festival poster in different years was decorated with works of different genres, performances of outstanding musicians and debuts of young stars. It was the International Festival of Mstislav Rostropovich who presented in Moscow not only many famous performers, but also whole groups. For 7 years, more than 80 thousand spectators visited the concerts of the Festival! As recognized by the public and the media, the Festival from the very beginning acquired the status of one of the main events of the cultural life not only of Russia, but of the world. 2017 - the year of the 90th anniversary of the birth of Mstislav Rostropovich, which will be widely celebrated throughout the music world, and the Moscow Festival will be the main stage of this celebration. According to the artistic director Olga Rostropovich, the concept of the jubilee Festival is based on the interconnection of musical cultures of four countries that were of particular importance in the life and work of Mstislav Rostropovich: Russia, the United States, France and Japan. The grand opening of the Festival is traditionally held on the birthday of the Maestro: March 27 in the Great Hall of the Conservatory will perform the Honored Staff of Russia The Academic Symphony Orchestra of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic under the leadership of Yuri Temirkanov.

I consider the festival of Mstislav Rostropovich - one of the most significant events of the season and I try to get to 2-3 concerts of this festival. The opening day was dedicated to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, who filly performed the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. The concert was just gorgeous! A true pleasure for music lovers.
