19:00 Britten-Shostakovich Festival Orchestra (Russia-UK)
2019 marks the occasion of the Year of Music, a bilateral initiative between Russia and the United Kingdom, and the Britten-Shostakovich Festival Orchestra was conceived with this initiative in mind. What makes this orchestra stand out, however, is that it is expected to continue and develop as a regular annual event in the musical calendars of both countries, to maintain a dynamic cultural collaboration between these young musicians. The orchestra is composed of similar numbers of British and Russian conservatoire age musicians, providing them with an invaluable musical and cultural experience that will leave a lasting impression at a key stage in their development. This concert is one of a series of public concerts taking place across Russia and the UK, and will be the first time that most of these musicians will have experienced such a large-scale international musical collaboration. Conductor: Jan Latham-Koenig. Piano: Pavel Kolesnikov. The Orchestra will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis; Sergei Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Op 43; Benjamin Britten's Four Sea Interludes Op 33a; Dmitri Shostakovich's Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra.

19:00 Il Volo (Italia)
Italian operatic pop trio "IL VOLO" will celebrate their tenth anniversary in Russia. Russian concerts will be part of the world tour of the Eurovision Song Contest bronze medalists, which the artists devote to the release of their new album "Musica", as well as the anniversary of the trio. One of the concerts of the tour will be held on September 12 in the Great Hall of the State Kremlin Palace. The incredibly rapid success story of "IL VOLO" began with the performance of a cover version of the famous Neapolitan song "O Sole Mio", after which the trio became a real favorite of the public: numerous concerts around the world, cooperation with Barbara STREISAND, Eros RAMAZOTTI, Toto CUTUGNO and other artists of international level, the victory at the prestigious Sanremo Music Festival 2015, the release of three platinum album, millions of records sold, 3rd place in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna, nomination in the Latin Grammy Awards, a contract with the American Label (for the first time in the whole history of Italian pop musicians). The power of the voices, the sense of classicality that underlies their sound, youthful charisma - this is what distinguishes the trio of two tenors: Piero BARONE, Ignazio BOSCHETTO, and baritone Gianluca GINOBLE, among other musical groups. At their concerts, the trio performs to the accompaniment of a symphony orchestra, so the repertoire of IL Volo appeals to listeners of all ages. The famous Italian trio decided to celebrate the decade of their friendship and joint career on a grand scale: on February 22, the musicians released the long-awaited album Musica, and announced a world tour, which will last until 2020. “We are grateful to Moscow for the warm welcome! It is incredible that music, imbued with the spirit of our native Italy, causes such a response from the Russian public! ”, say the musicians.
