Festival in Khabarovsk
International Music Festival in Khabarovsk
In 2008 the Moscow Soloists under the baton of Yuri Bashmet have been visiting the 38 cities of Russia with the concert tour dedicated to the 15th anniversary of chamber ensemble. In the frame of the jubilee tour in Russia’s Far East region, the orchestra for the first time gave a concert in Khabarovsk. In April 2010, Maestro Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists chamber ensemble have been performing in Khabarovsk for the second time. The great success of the performance by the Moscow Soloists was followed by the idea of holding an annual international festival of classical music in Khabarovsk.
The First International Music Festival headed by its Artistic Director Yuri Bashmet was held in April 2011 in Khabarovsk.
It is encouraging that in addition to the classical music concerts, the festival programme includes recitals, master classes, and special concert events for children.
Sine 2012 the International Music Festival in Khabarovsk will be held annually.
The Second International Music Festival is scheduled for April 2012.
