On Friday June 26 the audience will see the Chamber Concert of the VII Trans-Siberian Art Festivalestablished and headed by the Russian violinist Vadim Repin. The performance took place on March 26 this year in the State Concert Hall named after A. M. Katz (Novosibirsk). The artists performed Trio № 2 in D major by Johannes Brahms and Trio № 2 for violin, cello and piano in E minor ('To the memory of Sollertinsky') by Dmitri Shostakovich. The concert featured the stars of Russian academic school music: Vadim Repin (violin), Alexander Buzlov (cello), Andrey Korobeinikov (piano).
Trans-Siberian Art Festival is a Russian Forum headed by a Russian musician Vadim Repin. The name of Trans-Siberian Railway reflects not only the idea of uniting East and West, but also integrating Russian cities and other countries into a single creative network. Every year the Forum features premieres by contemporary composers. One of the major principles underlying the festival is extending global music space by inviting artists of the highest level to remote regions of Russia.
'At his time Diaghilev blew up the minds of conservative Europe by bringing Russian ballet, musicians, artists. That is why 'Russian seasons' have grown to become a symbol of new, fresh and unusual in art. I am delighted that a century later this project has been given a new lease of life, and I am proud that it is the fourth time that concerts of Trans-Siberian Art Festival have been its integral part' , - notes Vadim Repin.
