20:00 Eros Ramazzotti (Italy)
The word "superstar" is just not enough to describe the dimensions of Eros Ramazotti's worldwide success. The man is an undeniable force of nature, and now, 37 years after his debut single, and a dizzying 50 million record sales later, Ramazotti is ready to add the latest chapter to an incredible story. It's the tale of someone who, even as a young man born and raised in the Rome suburb of Cinecitta, dared to dream that he could have a shot of a music career. As a young hopeful learning as many ropes as he could get his hands on, he took up the guitar at seven and found his way onto movie sets as an extra. An international superstar whose appeal spans not only Western Europe but also Latin America, Eros Ramazzotti, with his thin, sometimes gritty, reedy tenor is a best-selling Italian singer/songwriter with a distinctive voice and a wide-ranging pop/rock style that encompasses everything from adult contemporary to classical crossover. He initially established himself as a chart-topping twentysomething pop star in the mid-'80s. During the following decade he grew more sophisticated as a singer/songwriter, remaining remarkably successful from both a critical and commercial standpoint in the process. During the mid- to late-'90s, Ramazzotti racked up no less than seven Top Ten singles on the Latin charts, and after 1994's Todo Historias, placed a dozen album in the Top Ten on Latin, Airplay, and Heatseeker charts as well as scoring on the streaming lists with literally dozens of singles.

19:00 Kazuhito Yamashita (Japan)
One of the most renowned classical guitarists of the world. A virtuoso with a stunning stage presence. First time in Moscow for 20 years. Kazuhito Yamashita released an album of his arrangements of Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” when he was only twenty years old, and the album was duly given the Deutsche Grammophon Award. The album made a real sensation in the music world, for it changed the view of technical and sonic possibilities of guitar. Further guitar Yamashita’s arrangements of virtuosi piano music were making sensation, too: “Firebird” of Stravinsky, Dvořák’s Symphony No 9 "New World", Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade”, Liszt’s “Hungarian Rhapsody No 2”… Kazuhito Yamashita’s virtuosity and vast repertoire (from Renaissance to modern times), as well as a very versatile playing, made him second to none. Kazuhito Yamashita was born in 1961 in Nagasaki, Japan. He started playing guitar at the tender age of eight, under the tuition of his father. By his sixteens, he has already became winner of many international guitar competition. And he tours Japan, Europe, Canada, USA, Great Britain, and Asia since 1978. To date, he has released a total of 83 albums (via BMG, Crown Classics, Victor Records, King Records, Alfa Records) with either original music or his arrangements. Yamashita doesn’t limit himself to only solo concerts, indeed, he plays duos with other guitarists, as well as with chamber ensembles and symphony orchestras. He plays with world famous musicians, and with his own children – as their family quartet. Kazuhito Yamashita is a champion of new guitar music – he premiered more than 60 new pieces. In 1999, at the National Festival of Arts the government of Japan awarded Gran-Prix for his album with Japanese music of 1923-1948 years.
