GALA RECEPTION

2 June, from 18:30

Royal Beach (14, Yuzhnaya Doroga, Krestovsky Island, St. Petersburg)

Guests will be welcomed by the Richter Trio – a musical group led by pianist, composer and leading exponent of Russian minimalism Kirill Richter, who has performed at many of Europe’s most distinguished venues. The trio, which includes cellist Avgust Krepak and violinist Alena Zinovieva, will perform tracks from their album CHRONOS, as well as film soundtracks, rarely performed pieces, and new compositions by Kirill which are set to appear on a forthcoming album.

This will be followed by a performance by Zivert, one of the biggest revelations in Russian pop, who has captured the hearts of millions.

The musical programme will then culminate with an exclusive presentation of Sergey Shnurov’s new project Zoya.

Access is by invitation from the Organizing Committee.
