The 7th "Violin on Nevsky" Festival will be Held in July

30 June 2021

The festival is expanding its territory: if earlier concerts were held only along the main street, now the festival atmosphere will spread around different parts of the city.

As the St. Petersburg Committee for Culture reports, from 5 to 8 July, the portable mobile stage will appear at the Vasileostrovsky, Moskovsky, Frunzensky and Primorsky districts. From 10 to 31 July, concerts will take place at the Arts Square.

According to the Committee, 4 programs will be presented to the audience this season. Works for violin and other stringed instruments of different eras will be performed in the program “Various Violins”. Selected concerts will be devoted to works by Mozart. It will be possible to explore violin music of the XIX-XX centuries in the “Waltzes, Polkas and More ...” program where dance music performed at the balls will also sound. One can also go “Around the World with a Violin” within the framework of a separate program, where works based on folk melodies, compositions by P. Sarasate, J. Brahms, E. Izaya, K. Saint-Saens will be performed by folk and jazz bands.

The entrance to the concerts is free.
