National Philharmonic of Russia
Conductor – Vladimir Spivakov
Alexander Gavrylyuk, piano

Vladimir Spivakov, the art director and chief conductor of National Philharmonic of Russia will conduct his orchestra in “Zaryadye” for the first time.

The highest culture of performance along with thought-provoking programmes and immaculate choice of soloists are trademarks of the maestro and the collective created by him.

This night, one of the most brilliant contemporary pianists, Alexander Gavrylyuk plays with the Orchestra. In 1999 Gavrylyuk won the Vladimir Horowitz Competition, in 2000 the Hamamatsu Competition and in 2005, most notably, the 2005 Arthur Rubinstein Competition. He tours the world regularly, while he’s a darling in Japan, where local press once called him “the most promising young pianist of the end of the 20th century”. Alexander Gavrylyuk has become Steinway endorser in 2003. The pianist frequently plays at Vladimir Spivakov Festival in Colmar (France).

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. The Orchestra united top orchestra musicians and gifted youth. During the 13 years of its activities, the NPR has succeeded in becoming one of the best symphonic orchestras of Russia and in gaining admiration from the audience and recognition from the professionals. Vladimir Spivakov, a world-known violinist and conductor, is the head of the Orchestra.

The National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia has been collaborating prominent conductors such as Michel Plasson, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Krzysztof Penderecki, James Conlon, Okko Kamu, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Alexander, Lazarev, John Nelson, Jan Latham-Koenig, Alexander Vedernikov, Tugan Sokhiev, Ken-David Masur, Simon Gaudenz, Stanislav Kochanovsky, Alexander Soloviev, and others.
The NPR’s repertoire covers the period from early classical symphonies to the newest works of modern composers. In the course of eleven years the Orchestra has presented many exceptional projects, world premieres, unique transcription series and concert cycles.

In accordance with its status and name, the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia gives concerts not only in Moscow, but in various regions of Russia as well. The NPR ends up each season with a tour in Russia. The “Vladimir Spivakov Invites…” Festival is held annually. And every year the NPR takes part in the International Music Festival in Colmar, France. The Orchestra has toured extensively over the CIS countries and the Baltic countries, in Europe, the USA, China, and Japan.
