On September, 12 the renowned orchestra from Tatarstan will present a brilliant program of Krasnoyarsk premieres. The artistic director and chief conductor of the chamber orchestra of Kazan «La Primavera» is the Honoured Arts worker of Russia and the Republic of Tatarstan, the People’s Artiste of the Republic of Tatarstan Roustem Abiazov. The created by him orchestra has enthusiastically been applauded by the public at the Royal Palace in Stockholm and Tunis Coliseum, at the World Fair in Hannover, as well as in Azerbaijan, Greece, Israel, Kazakhstan, China, Korea, Turkey, France, and Switzerland.

The name of Andrey Baranov, a winner of dozens of international competitions, gained a particular popularity a few years ago after a brilliant victory at one of the most prestigious performing forum — the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels, where in the thirties of the last century David Oistrakh obtained a victory.
As well as Andrey Baranov, his friend and partner Fedor Belugin is a brilliant winner of different competitions, including the first prize at the international competition in Stockholm. It is no coincidence, that they with other great musicians — a violinist Rodion Petrov and a cellist Alexey Zhilin — have founded the David Oistrakh Quartet, which has won the highest rating both in our country and in France, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and other countries for a few years of its artistic career.
Not only the outstanding level of mastery of each partner features the Quartet, but there are also the principles of deep national traditions of the quartet school. Suffice it to say that Fedor Belugin (by the way, he was Professor M. Benyumov’s student at the Musical Lyceum at KSAM&T) currently runs viola and quartet classes at the Moscow Conservatory and the Gnessin Russian Academy of Music. Before the David Oistrakh Quartet for seven years he was a violist of the Shostakovich State Quartet.

This work has already sounded in Krasnoyarsk in original edition for a solo cellist, however, in alto arrangement it will sound for the first time.
The Festival «Siberia — Europe» is a forum of classical music, where originality, conceptual integrity and indeed festive riches of genres and Krasnoyarsk premieres distinguish programmes of concerts. Continuing this tradition in the fourth concert for the first time in our city there will be performed J. Haydn’s Symphony № 25 and amazing by beauty and perfection «Variations on a Theme of Tchaikovsky» by a composer A. Arensky.
The family duet of a prizewinner of international competitions, now a student of the University of Arts in Berlin Rimma Benyumova and an Honored Artist of Russia, pianist Larisa Markosyan will begin the fifth concert of the festival on September, 24.
