The 10th International Music Festival, under the artistic direction of the outstanding musician Yuri Bashmet, will be held from May 1 to May 9, 2018 in Yaroslavl.
Over the ten years of its existence, the Festival has become one of the largest international music forums in Russia and has received the status of one of the country’s most beloved annual creative projects in the country.
The central theme of this year’s festival is a musical journey through the countries of Europe. In the framework of the forum, famous bands and world-famous musicians will come to Russia: the baroque ensemble Soqquadro Italiano (Italy), the Chamber Orchestra of Antonin Dvořák (Prague, Czech Republic), Quintessenza Brass (Italy), Jean-Luc Fafshan (piano, Belgium), Massimo Mercelli (flute, Italy), Harry Maki (clarinet, Finland), Carlo Colombo (bassoon, Italy-Switzerland), Nino Katamdze and Insight band (Georgia) and many others.
Maestro Bashmet himself will traditionally take part in the festival, both as a soloist and as a conductor of his groups: the Moscow Soloists Chamber Ensemble and the New Russia State Symphony Orchestra. Also, according to tradition, the Yaroslavl Philharmonic Choir Chapel will perform at the festival.

That evening, Denis Vlasenko will stand up for the conductor’s console of the New Russia Symphony Orchestra and the Yaroslavia Choir chapel.

So, Nino Katamadze and the Insight band will perform on the stage of the Yaroslavl Philharmonic, and maestro Bashmet and the New Russia orchestra will become special guests of the evening, “Classics Meets Jazz”.
