Moscow, Lavrushinsky Lane, 10
May 27 – June 6, 2021
Vivarte brings together chamber music and painting, tradition and avant-garde. The idea of the synthesis of arts is embodied in the main stage of the festival, the Vrubel Hall, where excellent acoustics is combined with the atmosphere of Mikhail Vrubel's "musical" canvases.
This year, the festival is dedicated to the 165th anniversary of the Tretyakov Gallery and outstanding collectors: from Pavel Tretyakov to Leonid Talochkin, thanks to whom the museum's collection was formed.
At each of the six evenings, leading art critics from the Tretyakov Gallery will acquaint guests with rare paintings from the storerooms, and musicians will perform chamber works inspired by the surrounding paintings. The final chord of the festival will be the Musical Promenade between the buildings of the gallery in Lavrushinsky lane and on Krymsky Val.
Participants include Freddy Kempf (piano), Sergei Nakaryakov (trumpet), Alexander Sitkovetsky (violin), Kirill Gerstein and Katia Skanavi (piano), Arthur Ansel and Lyudmila Berlinskaya (piano).
The festival is organized by the U-Art Foundation jointly with the State Tretyakov Gallery

There is little good in a pandemic, but it is the pandemic that has become the engine of progress in the field of online communications, and, to a large extent, this has affected the field of art. The VIVARTE festival was no exception. But witnessing living art, which happens here and now right before your very eyes, is certainly a one-of-a-time sight to behold! It is extremely important to us that we can get back to doing it >>
We are incredibly happy that the VIVARTE is once again taking place at the Vrubel Hall and the audience has the opportunity to listen to live music, witness masterpieces of painting and sculpture, and to feel the inextricable connection and synthesis of various types of art. The VI Festival, which, as always, was organized in collaboration with the U-Art Foundation is dedicated to the 165th anniversary of the Tretyakov Gallery >>
We are very glad that our VIVARTE festival is returning to its usual format and that we will all meet again in the Vrubel Hall of the Tretyakov Gallery. The live streams to which we had to limit ourselves at the last festival were wonderful, but it would be much better if they complemented the hall, filled with energy from musicians and the audience. And in the Vrubel Hall, additional energy is also provided by the paintings >>
