“I believe that Ekaterina is enormously talented! For instance, once she managed to learn two of my pieces during just 2 days, which is simply unbelievable, for the pieces are quite challenging. I couldn’t express anything to her beyond admiration. There was long standing ovation after she had played the entire programme. So, she’s just a miracle, a sensation!” Rodion Shchedrin, composer.

The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia (NPR) was founded in January 2003 by the Ministry of Culture according to the special instruction of President Putin. In the Orchestra, top musicians and gifted youth joined their forces. During 17 years of activity, the NPR managed to become one of the best symphonic orchestras of Russia, and won admiration of the audience as well as professionals’ recognition. Vladimir Spivakov, a world-known violinist and conductor, is the head of the Orchestra.
