20:00 Lisa Stansfield (UK)
The most convincing white R&B singer since Teena Marie, Lisa Stansfield reached the mainstream - after nearly a full decade in the music industry - as the featured vocalist and co-songwriter on Coldcut's "People Hold On." The 1989 single was a number 11 pop hit in the U.K. and a number six hit on the U.S. club chart. Later that year, the solo single "All Around the World" gave Stansfield a tremendous boost by reaching number one in several countries, including the U.K. From that point, throughout her distinguished if sporadic recording career, she was known for sophisticated, soul-inspired releases that appealed to a broad audience. Born in Manchester, England in 1966, Stansfield grew up listening to soul music. In 1980, she won Search for a Star, a singing competition, and released her first single, "Your Alibis" - a dramatic ballad seemingly made for a film - on the Devil label in 1981. Stansfield's most momentous year was 1989, when she co-wrote and fronted Coldcut's "People Hold On." Arista signed her as a solo artist, though she continued to record with Devaney and Morris, who co-wrote and produced the majority of her debut album, Affection, released in the U.K. In 1999, Stansfield made her film debut in Swing, for which she recorded ten songs - produced by Devaney - that were included on the soundtrack.

19:00 Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra
Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra performs various works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Robert Schumann and Hector Berlioz. The Orchestra was founded as part of the Culture national project, which was launched in 2018 with the support of the Presidential Grants Foundation and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The ensemble consists of 100 young performers aged from 22 to 28 and hailing from 20 regions of Russia. The first line up of the orchestra was formed following the All-Russian Young Orchestra Musicians Competition, which was organised by the Moscow State Philharmonic. More than 360 young musicians took part in the competition (2018). Unlike most youth ensembles, Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra operates all year round as a concert ensemble and an educational platform. Musicians perform with and study under such conductors as Valery Gergiev, Vasily Petrenko, Michail Jurowski, Alexander Lazarev, Alexander Sladkovsky, and Jean-Christophe Spinosi, as well as concertmasters of various Russian and European orchestras, experts in ensemble performance, orchestral peculiarities, and historic performance genres. In 20182019 season, the orchestra has collaborated with the concertmasters of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
