19:00 Musica Viva Chamber Orchestra (Russia)
Moscow’s Musica Viva performs The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi. This is one of the most popular and loved chamber orchestras of the Russian capital. The unique atmosphere of the orchestra’s concerts is but one of many attractions for the audience. Without any fuss or fanfares and unnecessary pathos the musicians present refined and unconventional musical programmes, in which acknowledged masterpieces rub shoulders with musical rarities. The reserved charm of high-level professionalism and genuine enthusiasm of the members of the orchestra, the delicate taste in their choice of musical works and invited soloists have formed a unique artistic image of the Musica Viva. This is a universal orchestra; it has as its asset an enormous repertoire which encompasses music of all directions and styles. The group regularly presents little-known or completely unknown compositions of the classics to the public. Thus, it is Musica Viva which presented the first performance in Russia of many works of J.Ch. and F.E.Bach, A.Salieri, I.Pleyel, J.Dusseck, K.Dittersdorf, O.Koslovsky et al. This research work, connected with the search for and performance of rarities is not at all an “intellectual feast for the chosen”. The touring geography of Musica Viva orchestra is unusually expansive. The group is an honored guest at the prestigious international musical festivals which take place in Russian cities, as well as in France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Turkey, etc. The Musica Viva officially represents Russian musical art at the “Days of Russian Culture” in other countries. The orchestra performs in the finest halls of Russia and Europe.

19:00 Persimfans (Russia) and Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra
Persimfans was a conductorless orchestra in the Soviet Union in the 1920s. By arranging the musicians in a circle, a completely innovative practice of performance, giving every musician the same responsibility as in a chamber ensemble, was established. The name Persimfans was a contraction of "Perwy Simfonitscheski Ansambl" (Russian for: First Symphonic Ensemble). In 2008, Persimfans was revived in Moscow by the initiative of Peter Aidu, together with like-minded musicians from the Russian capital. The founders of the new Persimfans were not guided by the fundamental rejection of the idea of a conductor. Rather, they were searching for an alternative to the hierarchical approach to interpretation. This lead to a concept of the orchestra where each and every musician, in addition to the normally required virtuosity, is expected to have a deep knowledge of the score that in a traditional orchestra is only required from the director. The benefit of this demanding concept is obvious: The precision, musical freshness and energy of Persimfans surpass by far what established orchestras normally achieve. Reconnecting with the principles of the first Persimfans orchestra, the ensemble of today gathers some of the best musicians from Russian leading orchestras, soloists and members of Russia’s most important ensembles. In Moscow, Persimfans and Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra perform Symphonic Dances by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
