The International Piano Festival
24 December 2013 - 30 December 2013

SCHEDULE 24 December 2013 - 30 December 2013

The Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre is presenting a new series of the Contemporary Piano Faces international festival – there will be concerts together with the Mariinsky Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev as well as recital programmes by unique musicians from various generations and different schools who all have their own “voice”, unlike that of any other performer: Denis Matsuev, Christian Blackshaw, Goran Filipec, Ohad Ben-Ari, Vladimir Milosevic, Eric Ferrand-N’Kaoua, Nikita Abrosimov, Ignasi Cambra, Sangwon Kim, Edisher Savitski and Vakhtang Kodanashvili.

Denis Matsuev: “It was a wonderful initiative on behalf of Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theatre to establish a festival with such a wonderful and subtle name as Contemporary Piano Faces in order to come together and present audiences with utterly different piano schools from all over the world.
“Of course, it is important to understand that the Soviet (Russian) piano school is, in my opinion, the best; first and foremost, it brought to life the art of singing on the piano, it existed in the “closed” USSR in a kind of detached manner. Today young pianists have the opportunity to take master classes and change their teachers. And so the various piano schools, including the Russian one, have mixed together. And I believe there’s something positive about that.
“At the Contemporary Piano Faces festival you will be able to see different generations and different schools. That is just great, because piano music is tremendously popular throughout the world.”

Valery Gergiev has stated that the festival’s task is to invite musicians to St Petersburg who have already won international acclaim but who are, as yet, less well known in Russia and to introduce new names and clear the path for young talents as well as to popularise piano music.

International Piano Festival
24–30 December 2013

The The Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre will be hosting International Piano Festival.
According to Maestro Valery Gergiev, the festival’s aim is to invite musicians to St Petersburg who are internationally acclaimed but as yet less well known in Russia, to showcase new talents and clear the path for young musicians as well as to make piano music more popular.
This international piano forum presents dazzling musicians from various generations and schools in addition to its tradition of focussing on one particular piano school with concerts featuring students of prominent teachers. The first festival brought together the students of the famed Tatiana Zelikman. At the second festival, Sergei Babayan appeared with Daniil Trifonov, one of his pupils at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The third festival saw performances by students from the class of Professor Alexander Sandler of the St Petersburg Conservatoire. The 4th festival focuses on graduates and students from the class of Marina Veniaminovna Wolf, a senior teacher at the Special School of Music of the St Petersburg Conservatoire. As well as a class concert, there will also be individual concerts by students of Marina Wolf who have already established themselves on the international scene – Polina Osetinskaya and Mikhail Yanovitsky.
