The VIVARTE chamber music festival is a totally new project that last year our foundation organized for the first time ever. It is associated with high hopes, expectations, discoveries, and creative plans becoming reality. We wish that the public would appreciate its uniqueness and that every evening people would be able to come in contact with art and enjoy it.
VIVARTE is a week of non-stop chamber music, and in this our event is similar to many others that also take place at one time in one place. But the distinctive feature of our festival is the fine blending of music with fine art, as well as the policy of no restrictions on composing music programs. The festival last day's program demonstrates this particularly well. On this day, we are planning an amazing Music Promenade - a series of mini-concerts that will start in the Gallery's main building of the Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane and end at the Krymsky Val branch of the Gallery with a large jam session.
For our foundation, bringing together different types of art has always been of great importance. The VIVARTE Festival continues this course, but above all we value our cooperation with the Tretyakov Gallery, a place with a singularly special atmosphere and history. This is a unique opportunity to view paintings usually kept in the repository while at the same time listening to beautiful music performed by international stars.
The capacity of the Vrubel Hall, unfortunately, does not allow for accommodating a sizable audience, but its small chamber environment affords a closer contact with music, and we are grateful to the Tretyakov Gallery for continuing the great tradition and being ready to open the museum's doors to music lovers.
