Musical Olympus (Muzakalny Olimp)
Musical Olympus (Muzakalny Olimp) Review
Another attractive event is the Musical Olympus festival organized by acclaimed Russian pianist Irina Nikitina at the Philharmonic in May and June. The festival assembles winners and laureates of each year's most respected musical contests from all over the globe. Each musician is handpicked by Nikitina herself or members of the festival's honorary committee. The audiences often get to see rising talents immediately after they've claimed the fame but haven't yet been booked for years to come.
