Svetlanov in the Spotlight

Don't miss on out the Svetlanov Universe Festival celebrating Evgeny Svetlanov's 90th birthday! Hosted by the Moscow Conservatory, the festival brings together musicians and friends who knew and loved the Russian maestro to pay tribute with memorial performances and special events.

A one-of-a-kind musical commemoration and a first for the city of Moscow, the festival features the artistry of the Russian State Symphony Orchestra. Known as the USSR State Symphony Orchestra until 1992, Svetlanov led the ensemble for nearly 40 years. The many concert programs highlight different facets of Maestro Svetlanov’s legacy, pairing selections from his favorite composers with his own compositions.

Experience world-class performances by artists who had the privilege of working with him (Vadim Repin, Alexander Kniazev, Dmitri Makhtin, Alexander Rudin) and younger musicians who admire him (Andrei Korobeinikov, Andrea Fallico) under the brilliant leadership of past winners and finalists of the Evgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition (Robert Trevino, Lio Kuokman, Roberto Fores-Veses and Kalle Kussave).
