The 2012-2013 season will be highlighted by the music of Johannes Brahms, whose 180th anniversary will be celebrated by the whole musical world in May 2013.

In keeping with tradition, the Festival’s main concert cycle will open on 1 November in the Mirror Hall of the State Institute of Art Sciences and close in the Rachmaninov Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on Brahms’s birthday – 7 May 2013.

All the piano compositions, sonatas for violin, cello, clarinet, piano trios, string and piano quartets and quintets, sextets, Hungarian Dances and Liebeslieder Waltzes – more than 80 compositions by Brahms altogether – will be performed in 17 concert programmes on the stages of the Chamber Hall of the House of Music, the Small and Rachmaninov Halls of the Moscow Conservatory and the Mirror Hall of the State Institute of Art Sciences.

The concerts will be performed by distinguished musicians, including Charles Neidich, one of the best clarinetists in the world, the Brahms Trio, Alexander Knyazev, Alexei Volodin, Peter Laul, Ilya Gringolts, Yana Ivanilova and other remarkable performers. The cycle will feature the first performance in Russia by Marc Coppey, the famous French cellist.

The Festival’s exhibition programme will be focused on Vienna – Europe’s musical heart, the city of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, a city where Brahms spent most of his life, the city of his triumph.

The opening of the Brahms Season will coincide with the first public exhibition of paintings and drawings themed Vienna Impressions, by the artists of the ASTI Gallery’s circle: Alla Bedina, Alexander Dragovoy, Svetlana Lanshakova, Lyubov Lesokhina, Olga Lisenkova – participants in the project “Austria through the eyes of modern Russian masters of painting” (Österreich – aus dem Blickwinkel russischer zeitgenoessischen Meister der Malerei”), launched in 2010 at the initiative of Allrus Gallery. The project will culminate in a large group exhibition in Vienna in 2013.
