Five Russian premiers, and two world ones, are at the setlist.

Music of Our Times is a cycle of concerts, with contemporary academy vocal music featured, performed by world and Russian Opera stars.
Concerts setlists are carefully made up of oeuvres by world renowned composers and young composers, as well as popular opera pieces, and rarely performed music.

One of the key missions of the project is promotion of contemporary composers, their exposure to the wider audience. That is why world premieres are staples of cycle setlists.

First ever performance of First night of a vocal piece by Ilya Demutsky“From ‘Letters to a Roman Friend’”, to a famous Brodsky poem, can be regarded as the high point of the concert.
