The Year of Music of Great Britain & Russia Begins!

The Year of Music of Great Britain & Russia is the next in line after The Year of Culture, The Year of Language & Literature and The Year of Science & Education. It officially began in Sochi a few days ago and was created to improve relations between our two countries. This year will last until the mid 2020’s, ending in Moscow with the Georg Handel Festival.

The Russian part of the event will open in London in July with a performance by The Bolshoi Ballet.

I am very proud to have been able to perform at the opening concert and am hopeful that music can bring our two countries closer together. I will be performing for the event again in August at the Tariverdiev Festival in Kaliningrad.
