From September 1 to September 9, Septembre Musical festival will take place in the Swiss city of Montreux and its environs. This year the festival will be held under the mark of Russian culture. The organizers’ new approach is aimed at popularizing cultural and musical traditions among young people. The dream of the director of the festival, Misha Damev, is to turn the festival into an international platform for meetings and cultural exchange.
According to the idea of the recent head of the festival Misha Damev, a conductor of Bulgarian origin, each year will be dedicated to one country. The culture of this country will be presented in a variety of forms. Of course, first of all we are talking about classical music, musicians, orchestras and soloists. But besides this, the public will be able to get acquainted with traditional music, fine arts and even the country’s cuisine *.
In 2019 Septembre Musical will acquaint the audience with the richest Russian culture, its classics and modernity. The program includes performances by the best Russian performers and ensembles, including the Mariinsky Theater Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Valery Gergiev, the Russian National Orchestra, and the pianist Nikolai Lugansky. The festival will also present to the public young talented performers from Russia: the choir of the Glinka School, participants in the Nutcracker project and the break-dance show “Reverese”.
ChetMen will perform their original works on September 7th.
