A state-of-the-art concert hall opens its doors in Moscow’s Zaryadye Park: the Zaryadye Concert Hall! A grand event that brings together the brightest stars of the Russian musical firmament—from Albina Shagimuratova, Anna Netrebko, Ildar Abdrazakov, and Mikhail Petrenko to Pinchas Zukerman, Daniil Trifonov, and Denis Matsuev—and the Mariinsky Theater Orchestra under Valery Gergiev’s direction. With a tropical garden on the roof, 1,600 seats, and Moscow’s largest organ (with 85 pipes!) constructed by French artisan organ builders, this concert hall is set to turn international heads!
