The Centre for Contemporary Music of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia presents a new Russian-Swiss project AlpenFest.
This is a large-scale project which focuses on presenting contemporary swiss music in a network of concerts, seminars and workshops, multimedia performances. Initiated by the Studio for New Music ensemble on the year of 200th anniversairy of diplomatic relations between Russia and Switzerland, it is commited to bringing best examples of the Swiss musical culture variety to the Russian audience. The festival's programs feature portrait concerts of well known composers and teachers of Switzerland: Michael Jarrell, Klaus Huber, Heinz Holliger, Gerard Zinsstag, as well as thematic concerts focused on the music art of German, Italian and French parts of the country. The Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory will host masterclasses and meetings with swiss artists. The premiere performances of the multimedia video-projects by composers Oscar Bianchi and Nadir Vassena, staged by the Studio for New Music ensemble in collaboration with leading theatre centres of Russia will certainly be highlights of the festival.
